I have always, always loved this painting. The palette has kept my New York City apartments bright and alive and awake! Tease has adorned many walls in many homes and continues to do so today. C.T. was also a pleasure to adopt from.

I saw this piece after checking FAAN when Adam Simon wrote news of the last article written about this great site.
i loved this piece immediately. I Wrote Cassandra and told her of my lifelong affection for works that caught a moment of the interactions of fluids.

Her Green approach and and the decorative convections that she offers are a nic strategy and infinitely accessible.

The adopter, Karen Schechner, writes:

I love the way Tilt-A-Whirl's fuzziness plays with ambiguity and imagination. It's sort of simultaneously innocent and ominous, carnival-esque and industrial. I wanted it and then wanted it some more the longer I stared at it.

When I first saw it on FAAN, I immediately emailed Dave to make my plea, and hoped no other potential adopters would convince him that they were worthy of Tilt-A-Whirl. After Dave was kind enough to respond that day to tell me the good news that T-A-W was all mine, we found out we have some things in common -- both queer with queer sibs who we love and who love us back, making us all, in a way, one big happy fegelah family.

Dave is clearly sweet and generous and talented, and my girlfriend and I appreciate his letting us ride Tilt-A-Whirl off into a green and purple sunset. Viva la FAAN!

I posted this piece on xmas morning around 10; went out with my partner to see a movie and returned at 1pm to find an adoption request!

Karen wrote that both she and her female partner love Tilt_A-Whirl, and in the spirit of the day I was very happy to tell her the piece was hers.
Karen is a writer and editor. She wrote a piece about FAAN for New York Press.

Met david with other FAAN members Niki and Audra today at Joe's Shanghai. Traded my painting "upside-down nude" for this lovely photograph which looks to be rather biological. Sometime cellular stuff really digs into my brain.

David is awesome and a warm-hearted artist who hails from the western part of the city. Great to see him and of course, he really loved the Chinese food at Joe's. ;)

thanks again!
