First off, I must say, I am proud of myself. This was not an easy semester. 4 classes, 3 of them studio classes. I haven't done that wacky of a schedule in years. Thankfully, I made it through though with only a few bumps. This semester I created a business plan, 4 figure sculptures, and over 100 paintings. That is a lot of work in 15 weeks.
Another semester down, 3 more classes to go. I am soo excited to be so close to finishing my BFA. I have 1 required course and 2 of my choice to take next semester and I dont know what too choose. I am kind of thinking Mixed Media 2, Monotype, Relief Printing, Painting Concepts, Abstract Painting, or Studio Landscape. Too many choices. Right now I am leaning toward Mixed Media 2, and Relief Printing. We will see what I end up choosing after I talk to my adviser and have my portfolio review.
I am really into printmaking right now because that is what I am going to be doing for my Christmas presents this year. Every year I like to make my gifts. I have done candle holders, ornaments, candles, and you might remember my Winter Bird paintings from last year. This year I am not going to go as crazy and give everyone an original painting. No, this year i will be creating prints. I dont want to go into detail but I promise I will post them after Christmas. I am quite excited about them and will probably sell a few in my shop.
I hope everyone has a wonderful, happy, peaceful holiday season.
