Today I closed the door for the last time on my much-loved studio of 15+ years. It’s empty. My work is now in storage. This is the end of one era and the start of another.
I keep thinking about something my husband, Jeff told me a few years ago.
The last painting in my studio.
My paint covered work shirt.
A layered image of me and the empty studio.

Today, I realized I’m not asking
WHY? often enough.
When my children were little I answered to WHY all the time and considered it part of our daily/hourly experience.
Why is the sky blue? Why do we brush our teeth? Why does that man smell weird? Why can’t I wear just a tutu? Why can’t I watch that scary movie? Why are you still sleeping?…
I’ve done things the same way for so long.
I don’t know. It requires further examination.
Why is such a beautiful word in other languages.
I particularly like
Perhaps because I’m part Swedish.
