My Mark Deuce hasn’t left my side since she arrived last week. We haven’t slept together yet; it’s a little early in the relationship to take that kind of step, but she rests peacefully on a sweater that I never wear, right next to the bed (in case I wake up and need her as I did in the previous post). The students in the full-time program have had to get used to this new relationship. I know they’re jealous but they’re learning how to cope. They spent this week in the studio with Ron Aira for their first attempt at portraiture. I took some photographs of the process. These are some of those some.
