I've been working on these little 4x5 paintings. I like working this small, it's fun and intense. I will be doing two more little ones after this. Just wanted to show you what I was up to. I told my sister, Adriana, that I was going to make some prints to sell and she said, "Prince?". That gave me an idea, maybe I will paint Prince, who knows, maybe I won't.

I'm pleased with how this turned out. I went back to my own memories of pregnancy and the moment when it hit me that from then on, it wasn't all about me anymore. After I had my first child, I stopped talking in singular and started referring to myself as "we". What a shock.

After a break from painting, I'm back with a load of new ideas. When I was a very small child I drew a lot of pregnant women who's bellies you could see through. You could see the baby. I must have been fascinated by my mom being pregnant that I drew this a lot. When I find the old drawings, I'll post them. This memory inspired me to start a new series of pregnant women paintings. They will be very small, like tiny baby paintings. The first piece will be called: "The End Of Me, The Beginning Of We". Here's a sketch, and, yes, that is a lamb fetus.
