I have skipped alterity because I have included photos of my students in the piece and need permission to publish it online. I have done about 20 collages for my journal for the class "Crossing Borders". Each collage is about a word in post colonial studies. This word is appropriation. In this collage the modern gangs are using tatoos that originated with early tribal peoples but they are using for their own imagery and purposes. One of my class mates said we should wash our faces in good thoughts and I love the idea behind those words. Now every morning when I wash my face I will think of those good thoughts for the day. Good night all!
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
