Well, today is the submission date for my A.P. students 5 best pieces...then I can breath again and refocus on my own homework for the Academy of Art University. If you did not know, I am doing my M.F.A. completely online. So far in this Quick Studies class I have done 84 paintings in oil, mostly 9"X12" or 11"X14" and one 18" X 24" since February 1st 2010. Between now and May 20th I still have 10 more 11" X 14" and one 18" X 24" to complete.
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.
