Sorry, I have really neglected my blog. I have not been painting much. I passed my midpoint review at the Academy of Art in San Francisco which has taken a lot of my time. I had to learn how to install Power point and a web cam onto my computer. Then I had to learn how to use powerpoint for my online video conference. Also I have had 2 wonderful uncles visit from out of town and Nana, our past Indonesian exchange student also has come to visit. I went to Kansas for a week to visit our daughter and her family and give those 4 grandchildren some hugs. In between all this I have still been teaching high school art and taking an online masters class called "Crossing Borders". I am making a book for that class that illustrates the vocabulary of the class in collage.
The piece I am posting today will be at the Knowlton Gallery the month of December and January.
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.
