The plan someday

A pause

Henriette Sonne, the fabulous Danish artist who
lives in Norway with her brilliant filmmaker
husband, and two little children, was showing
her series Buy Two get One Half Price
at the Louvre in early December.  We met in
Florence when we were both showing at
the Florence Biennale in 2009.  Since then
I have painted and drawn Henriette via Skype
quite a few times.

In our conversation last spring about Skype
I told her that I photograph my conversations
with Steven while we're talking.  Afterwards
I go through the photos and it feels like having
the conversation again.  Henriette said that when
we have a show together sometime I must
place these photos all around the gallery wall.
I could probably also fill a gallery with my
drawings of Steven from those photos.

Here is another one.

Have a covering-the-walls-with-art day.
