New Pictures

The Professor  still feels off although improving. Because of the meds. he has been able to paint. He did not have the energy to work on larger work but he did 9 small pictures: 5x7, 6x8, 8x10, and 9x12. The Professor likes small pictures. They each could be much larger. Being ill at any age is not good, but at his age it has all the intimations of mortality. There is a fine line between health and sickness. At this time in his life he has so much hope in the future. Many possibilities have manifested themselves.
Opening day of classes tomorrow: Hello to class, give them the syllabus, tell them what to expect and send them off to get supplies so we can start class next period and then we have the labor day holiday. The classes are full.

  1. Every time one of our art troopers goes (Dave Hickman), the ole mortality issues raise their head. Illness, or even feeling "off" draws this specter into our introspective gloom. Fortunately your bright palette will certainly revive your spirit as it does ours when we visit the Professor's blog.
