It is hard to believe that my fall semester of teaching is over already and it is into the holiday season and my winter break. The start of winter break leads to the excitement of knowing that I have a full month to focus on my studio work. I look forward to continuing work on a new series I have been developing and to exploring a new found interest in graphite on paper. I really have been intrigued now by trying to element color from my work and just to focus on the forms and the expressive powers of my mark making. Well, we will see what the break brings and I look forward to sharing the work that comes from this time.
