Another Semester Ends

Another semester has ended, which means I am getting closer and closer to a private studio next fall. I can hardly contain my excitement! With fewer classes I will have more time to focus on my own interests and artistic direction (which I feel has gotten clouded and lost along the way).

The past semesters have flown by. There were some tears, periods of frustration, and a lot of failed paintings, but in the end the lessons that I have learned are invaluable.

I only have a few simple studies that I am willing to show for this weeks post.
