Whitney Gould and I have known each other since we met in college in Vermont. Both painting majors, our studios were two doors down from each other. After college, she and I, and some of our other friends, moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn when the neighborhood was still an industrial wasteland and there was plenty of cheap studio/living space. We have been friends ever since (about twenty-five years) and although we no longer live around the corner from each other, we are still in touch.
