It is "homecoming week" at school so, after a week of crazy pep rallies and shortened classes and costume changes, we arrive at Friday: the football game and the dance. It's been hard to keep the focus on art making in class. I nearly gave up today. And then some of my students surprised me.
One of my advisees, the sweetest guy, gave me a rose. He had a dozen he was delivering one by one to his friends. Thoughtful of him. It was so beautiful I painted it during my lunch period so I could give something back to him. Hope every one is safe this weekend.
