New Digs, New Placement

George and I moved to a studio Greenpoint as of August. We are still settling into our space. It's not quite home yet, but we're getting there. Photos to come.

This year I am interning in the acute inpatient psychiatric unit of a city hospital. Writing a thesis and not spending as much time painting as I would like.
