Although I definitely miss palm trees in LA and great sea food in Santa Barbara, I am happy to be back home here in rainy cold NYC.Here are some pictures from the trip, Marcos Chin and me signing newly released Bliss Express at Gallery Nucleus (you can still purchase autographed copies there, I think), and us in front of, yes, palm trees!

Biggest thank you goes to: the one and only Thomas Fuchs for not giving up on me.

Also, special thank you goes to: Gary Taxali, James Jean, Esther Pearl Watson, Mark Todd, Rob Clayton, Martha Rich, Ann Field, Aaron Smith and Nathan Ota. Hope to see you all again soon!
