Finish line

Posted on Apr 26, 2013 in Education, Experiments, living the dream, MICA

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!
