I am incredibly lucky in my work -- in art and in
teaching. In painting I have no trouble letting paintings
go for the most part. My paintings are meant to go
to new owners after they make the leap from my
mind to the canvas. But sometimes it's hard to say
goodbye to a wonderful class of students -- people
filled with ideas and humour. I know I'll see some
of them again in the halls, but all of them will move on
amid high fives and bright smiles, and I will miss them.
Here is The Cake House in what I think is its final
version. I tried to keep it loose -- the original
impression still in the work. I'll let you know whether
it's going in a new show soon.
Have an enjoying-art-and-people day.
