quiet victory


Raise your glass, here's to me. I am done with the drawings for the American Standard of Perfection!!! :-) It happened at 12:59am today, the last time the pencil touched the paper for the last pair of drawings, that feeling of knowing they were complete. It's pretty weird to be done, but oh my gosh it's good, it's like being released, moving on... It's been a lot of things, an honor, an accomplishment, a headache, a frustration.... My skills and technique have improved so incredibly much, I've added a huge amount of art to my portfolio. But there have also been some hard lessons learned, mistakes made, and things I will never do again. I've learned a lot about art, about business, about my time and how much I now value that. It's good to be done. It's been years. What a ride...

I'll post the art soon, I'm hoping for feedback from one more committee member.

Katherine,
Congratulations, You have done beautiful work and the APA is better for it. I lift my Coca Cola glass!

You think you have a tough choice???This summer is my 40th reunion! Caramba...And the letter I just got said my wife and I would need to send $170 bucks to attend.(choke) Of course since we live in Roswell and I have spent the last 30 years teaching Chemistry at my old Alma Mater... spending the summer talking about school days is the last thing I want to do!!
Wait for your 20th...that is when the "reunion " is more genuine!
