Further information

I’ll lie to everyone when I tell them how much I can take. When I fall in love, it will be forever. And then I wait for passages of beauty, but the peace offering might not carry us. You face me with your head down, but it’s all for you.

This painting started out as a collaboration with musician P.SUS. He constructed a song looking at my painting as it progressed. I painted listening to each new version of his song. The song, which is called School days, can be found at
