Finish line

It’s the end of the semester. I’m fried. My students are fried.
We’re all dragging ourselves across the finish line at this point.

It has been a great semester for us, but man, I can’t wait for things to settle down. If you have never talked to a graduating senior on a college campus in late April, it goes something like…

Me: “Hey (insert otherwise cheerful student’s name here). How is everything going?”

Student: “I am re-evaluating all of my life choices.

Me: “Don’t worry, it will all be okay (smile and repeat this a few more times).

Student: “Yeah, I guess.”

Me: . . . they’re so cute at this age.

 

In studio news, the work is steadily flowing. I have four paintings left in a huge project that has had a hold on my life for a while now. It’s the first time in a while that I have been really happy with my work and I can’t wait to share it with the world. In the meantime, here is a page from my sketchbook that will give you an idea of the fun and creativity that has been a brewing here on Sweet Air Street:

I won’t be traveling to Sao Tome this summer which will give me an extra month to work here in my studio. Though sad I won’t be joining the group, it will be great to stay home and make art!
