the day after

caitlin's biological dad passed yesterday, after much uncomfortable congregation at his bed side with disgruntled family members...he was absent most of her life, and she has had a wonderful step dad for 20 years..add it up and it makes for some awkwardness...definite life experience...

stella and i are happy to have her back in the eug.

my project for the book is coming along slowly, i usually have a hard time actually deciding on how to build my piece, i usually only use black and white, so it would seem easy, but it seems harder, i want to be original everytime, but i also know i should represent myself as best i can, so i find myself tryin to figure out which patterns i like best from my old work...not usually my m.o. but this piece is different.. and no matter what, i dont get paid for at least 6 months cuz it has to be sent out and photographed and such... i'm used to doing all that, its gonna be weird to just send off a piece, to be reuinited at a show later..growing up i guess...and the timidness of the show and book not living up to its claims, or not happening at all... cynicism can override hopefulness at any given moment.. chris.

"all you need is love"
i actually didn't have a step dad. he was loving enough to adopt my brother and i after much debate as to whether greg (bio dad) could give us proper care.... this of course made things even hairier... death is a beast that i haven't yet learned to understand. it feels good to not have any regret attached to his passing. i'm so thankful that i reached out and nurtured a relationship with him. life is so precious. looks like i need my own blog.... your piece will be creative, classy, and well executed as usual. fear only holds us back from the wonder that we are.
