For those of you who have heard me talk about my dear (and crazy) drawing professor, Bippes, here's a photo of him when he was modeling for us. He wasn't very good at staying still so I'm glad that we are not paying him for his modeling abilities, but rather for the instruction afterwords! haha


I would like to make a formal apology to everyone that I have been less than attentive to over the past two or three weeks. I have been moving non-stop and anything that didn't have a due date or involved the word "show" in any sense was pushed onto the back burner.
While those few days—largely within the past two weeks—were really rough, with God's help I was able to make it through, and even had some very satisfying results in the end. But I am thankful that it is all over and I can now start responding to my various Emails, catch up with some neglected friends, sleep, and post on everything you have missed in the past month!
It has been hard, but I've grown so much! It has been proven once again that I can do nothing without God, and I am still loving my major despite the effort that it requires :) I'm not quite done yet though, I'm working on the last bit of homework as I type!

Thank you for all of the prayers that have been lifted on my behalf—I felt each one and appreciate them so much!

Busy summer ahead—more posts soon :)

Art Show—Spring 2010

The art show has come once again. And two of my pieces are in the show! I am very excited, though I am a little disappointed that my other two pieces did not get into the show. I was also selected by my professors to receive the "William L. Bippes Art Scholarship"! This scholarship is given based on work ethic and performance along with a few other aspects. The scholarship is given to a sophomore or a junior every year—as a sophomore I feel so honored! I'm the third person to win it since it began, and I am so excited to have my name in the art building :D It sounds so stupid, but I look so forward to coming to visit after I graduate and seeing my name. Featured are the pieces I have hanging up in the art center :)
