Ho hum

Well I actually have a lot to post, that needs catching up with, but this one is (because I am feeling a bit down and out today and because of time constrictions) a short one.

Today I will only mention a few things, one being that I am "self portrait" number 82 on The Self Portrait Gallery which you can view here.

Secondly I have had the opportunity in the past few weeks to be on the front page, which has made me please to say the least. The Wonderful Peach Tree snapped this image for me and the second one I was able to see with my own eyes. The Peach Tree is quite the treasury queen herself, as is Michelle Maule, who curated the second front page treasury I was in.

That is it for now. Teaching is going well, I had my students do an Artist Trading Card assignment, which was really successful (I want to keep them all!) and now one class is working on a comic book and the other is doing linoleum cuts. Fun fun.

I'm sad that you're feeling down!!! I recognize it's perfectly normal, but I hate to think of you that way. I am going to do some thinking and see if I can come up with something to make you smile...

CONGRATULATIONS on all the recognition, and very well deserved! Both front page Treasuries you were in are so beautiful as to be like fleeting poems. The mood they create, these gorgeous works together, are spectacular. Your pieces within are riveting.

Your students are very lucky to have you! What exciting projects. I'll bet you're creating some lifelong artists. What a contribution to the betterment of all!

Sending happy thoughts,
