This weekend my good friends Giordanne Salley and Dan Perkins drove up to Vermont to pay me a surprise visit. I thought I’d take the moment to show a couple of their new paintings. I’ve known them for about two years and it’s interesting to have watched their work evolve over that time, and also have friends who have become familiar with my work and watched my paintings evolve as well. The three of us talk about painting together in a very candid way, which I find extremely helpful in getting excited about my own work and it pushes me to try new things. Both of them are currently in their first year of graduate school, I’m looking forward to seeing what comes out over the next year an a half.
