About the piece

This piece was inspired by my girlfriend, and she is an artist/painter.  We both do our work in the art building at BC and she was present during the entire writing process of my piece.  It was inspired not only by her work, but the piece is a sketch in itself of her personality, our conversations, and our working environment working late hours in that building.
