And it was so good.
|I love these women.|
|I need a haircut.|
I had individual critiques with the advanced drawing students, did some figure-drawing with the intro to drawing students, caught up with my former professor Dale Leys, whom I have known since 1996......and took photos in the ol' drawing room on the 7th floor of the fine arts building...
|These couches are gone, but the cushions remain.|
|I am comforted by how long this has been where it is.|
I also manically talked about my work with two groups of unresponsive high school art students, awesome introductory printmakers, quietly intense bookarts students, and intelligent, engaged advanced printmakers. I had brought sort of an odd mix of work, and probably said some odd things about it...
There were also lunches with Bonnie, a swell dinner party at Nicole and Jim's, where I manically waved my hands around...
|Do I talk with my hands a lot?|
I'd describe it as comforting. All different characters, but some things have not changed a bit. And I was haunted by many ghosts and memories of my college days, and the misfit trouble-makers I ran around with. We owned that place and took good care of each other.
I also spent much quality time with my best friend Jenni, her husband Matt, a poodle named Lola, and my almost-three year old god-daughter Susie....
|Reading, negotiating, tickling, princess-ing, all good.|
|Lola is like a muppet-pony, and we are very fond of each other.|
Thank you for reading!
