A time of reckoning
Some things cut into a painter's time. Some?
Most. I love teaching, and hope to continue for many years, but exam time is a crazy time
for everyone in the school environment. Students are stressed because they have to study, teachers because they have to mark mounds of papers, and because although they want everyone to do
well, some students can't.
Tax time, coming as it does right at the end of term crunch, adds an extra time demand. For now, I'm heading to school to mark and oversee an exam. Soon I'll be painting, and that will be that.
And when I am, I'll miss my students.
Here's one of my favorite paintings, Girl in a Blue Sweater.
Have a mathematically perfect day.
