Sold! Private collection, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Over a week after returning from our trip, I'm still not over jetlag. Exhaustion kicks in at 6pm, and I'm watching the stars moving through the branches of the tree outside the bedroom window at 4am. Powerful cups of espresso don't seem to equalize the balance of night and day, but that didn't stop me from carving out this little study of the iconic Illy espresso cup.
