Classes have begun for 2022 and it feels great to get back in the classroom. I am teaching a drawing course along with a couple of watercolor classes. Teaching is always a huge honor and I love sharing new ideas with students. I am also currently teaching myself French which has been a fun challenge. It's a beautiful language and I am studying now because I'll be living in France for 3 months in 2023. I'll be painting and living at Claude Monet's estate thanks to a wonderful fellowship which I was awarded last year. My last update is to share a recent self portrait drawing. I have been painting more recently, but I'm also drawing a lot as well. Fall is my favorite time of year and I'm really enjoying it so far.
