Last month, my great aunt Teenie passed away. She was rockabilly before rockabilly existed. I now sport one of her ever-present, over-sized cocktail rings. I asked the family if I could have the tapestry of the bullfighter that had hung in her living room since before I was born. It now hangs in my studio, where every time I look at it, I am transported to my childhood, to that family home.
