Okay, so I know I haven't been around... And I know excuses are relatively meaningless, but I have been really, really busy.
For one, I'm busting my ass in my beginning painting class. The photos below are some 'work in progress' shots for my final. They still have a far way to go, but I'm working hard. They are due Tuesday afternoon. Yikes!
Also, I've got an installation/sculpture that I'm building in my contemporary fiber forms class. Don't know how that is really gonna get done, especially with the poli-sci paper I have to write this week.But I suppose I'll manage somehow.
Oh yes, also, this Tuesday I'll be firing my first glaze firing at Red Brick. (Well, it's really my second if you count the test kiln I fired last week, which ran for 72 hours before shutting off unbeknownst to me because the speed dial is cranky, also unbeknownst to me.) I don't have much to fill it with, but I want to take some pictures to send in for a scholarship opportunity, the deadline of which is on Wednesday.
Also, I had a great Thanksgiving with my family, my fiancé and I bought a car last Sunday, I finally got a basic little website up, I got a great haircut, and yes, it is my birthday today... for which I have nothing planned other than my last day at my day job, finishing my paintings, and ordering some killer take-out.
Oh yes, and we leave on the 19th for a three week road trip to Montana, then Texas, then New Mexico, and back. I'm already looking forward to coming home. :)
I leave you with this great little video to warm your winter hearts.
