wasting away in the art building...




these are the latest things to emerge victoriously from my studio cubical.

the top one is a self portrait with dots. the bottom ones are a style study of four master artists. the first is hopper, then van gogh, then liechtenstein, and the bottom one is rauschenberg.

i'm ahead in class- one project left, one week left.

pizza...

last night i ate at brick oven pizza co. with gene, beckie and vivian... of course while we waited we talked of our travels and the wonderful food we had eaten along the way. since i can't talk about italian yummies yet (although i will be able to in 2 weeks!), i threw in chicago.

best pizza in chicago... found at giordano's. their world famous stuffed pizza will leave you stuffed. it's so wonderful. you can get almost anything you can dream of inside your pizza. it's thin crust is cracker crisp and so yummy on the edges...



a plain 'ole good chicago hot dog is at j's dawg and burger... it's cheap and good... but they yell at you if you put ketchup on your hot dog...

ode to a dead guy


german expressionist, kandinsky... oh how i love this piece, now that i've copied it, i have an even greater appreciation for it. kinda glad it's over though...

30+ hours... you get a little tired of looking at the same thing all the time, and measuring and looking and guessing... oh the measuring...

kandinsky's composition viii- lyn style. i'm naming it the title of this post... "ode to a dead guy, kandinsky's composition viii"

slowly but surely...

i'm getting moved in. clothes are still in bags, books and knick-knacks still in boxes, but the kitchen is fully unpacked and functioning. my bedroom is a wreck from the boxes, bags, and just plain clutter littering the floor... it will get done eventually- i'm in no hurry.

class is going alright, joey and i are facing the elements and painting outside from 1-5 every afternoon, we've found shade. 

i'm ready to go to europe, an adventure that i'm sure will influence me in many ways. can't wait. 

searcy isn't the same with out my usual gaggle of friends... i stayed on the phone with nash for about 2 hours the other night, just laying in bed, neither of us could sleep... i'm proud of april, she's doing something new to her, well... not new, but new again... ; ) i miss her so much it hurts. erin is back in knoxville and i can't wait for her to come to arkansas. the good thing is, traffic isn't as horrible as it is when school is in...
