The last two images in the series are a drawing and painting of me by Alix Bailey. We were studio neighbors in the mid-nineties in Bloomington, Indiana—she was in graduate school at I.U. and I was still aspiring to get in!—and she taught me the painter’s second favorite trick: trade posing time with another painter.
(The first favorite trick is to get friends to sit for free.)
