i lost another mentor this week. he passed away on thursday.
unforseen circumstances kept me home from chicago this weekend.
sometimes things work themselves out.
if i had been gone i would not have been able to go to the memorial tomorrow.
it looks like i will be travelling this weekend after all.
i can’t not be there.
he was my art professor. he was one of a kind and one of the funniest people i’ve ever known. he recognized and named parts of me i didn’t know. he lectured from the coolest notebooks– a combination of years of accumulation. most of the artwork he taught in art history he had photographed himself. his metal sculpture is brilliant. i never told him i finally learned to weld.
