I went to see Donut Heart perform at the Lesbian and Trans* stage at the Berlin Lesbian and Gay Festival last weekend. The festival is one part of the Berlin Pride Month activities, which culminate next weekend in Christopher Street Day. It was a warm and wonderful crowd, a lovely joyful vibe.
I had a great time and was so glad I fought my fear of crowds and went!
I’ve been working on a lot of things, but laggy about sharing them. At the beginning of May I started this portrait of our friend Quinn Norton and her companion. I haven’t had a minute to do any more work on it, but luckily they come to Berlin quite often and we’ll pick it up again on the next visit.
I chose to do the sitting in our library because its earth-tone palette better suited Quinn’s dark copper hair.

It will be a ravishing jewel-colored picture when finished!
