[L] Dreaming. pastel and graphite on paper, 11x14"
One night, mom asked me to stay with her, and I slept in her bed. There wasn't any mom-daughter talk or anything, rather we went to sleep right away. Somehow, we both slept very well the first time in a while that night.

[L] Encounterer (or stairs). pastel and graphite on paper, 11x14"
I sometimes run up the stairs home instead of taking an elevator. Can't stairs be where to meet someone to greet in the morning?
[R] Anonymity, pastel and graphite on paper, 11x14"
There a notice put up on the elevator wall from the apartment maintenance. Some residents trash the cigarette butts out of the window, causing a potential fire hazard on the outdoor fans of lower units. Hmm, who that'd be?
[L] The way back home. colored pencil and graphite on paper, 11x14"
After a full-day event, it was already getting dark and we were exhausted with good feelings of spending a day together. We were out of subjects to share anymore but still tempted to start another conversation.
