My classes have ended for the semester; but I still have papers to grade and final exams to administer. I very much look forward to devoting more time to my creative endeavors SOON! I spent some time in my studio last night (and a little bit today) and have some sketches that I think will materialize into finished pieces. Here are a couple. Still need to do some finishing touches on the flower piece (definitely needs a "toned down" mat!) and some more work on the other (which I consider a very preliminary sketch). I will post more details soon (especially with regard to the furniture/B&W guy piece... I think that may become a series).
