Furaidochikin Crossing: Return to Onishi

Sue Anne! You’ve got some Spaining to do! Day 87, 2nd Art Show

Welp.  I feel great.  It only took a full day of rest after a full day of art show install at Estudio Nomada!  The night before the show, knowing that one piece alone would put 100 holes in the wall, I had hours of anxiety filled dreams.  In one I couldn’t breathe and in another […]
