Yes Folks, I've been hauling out sheaves of my past and beating the chaff off my art stash.

You can follow our progress at Heartloose.com. All coin received goes straight towards buying a camper, and I will gladly barter my art for things on our desires list.
This stash spans my life from 9th grade to the present. Here are some points of reference as you browse: 1991 I finished High School, 92-93 I went to Pratt, 94-96 my years at Cooper, 2000 I married, 2003 I moved back to NYC.

"Oh, Hi Friend! I see you hung that painting in the laundry room. Lovely vintage. What's that you say? Your porch steps need fixing? Just let me unpack my tools ... "
