Fake Dream Drawing (Before my show opens, I am framing a group of my "fake" dream drawings and notice that on what are supposed to be pristine white border areas, melon seeds and orange, warping stains and I begin to freak out, I can't figure out how they got there since I've been careful all along to keep them clean.)
