Keeping Afternoon Hours in my Classroom Christmas Art Gallery

Beauty in art reminds one what is worthwhile.

Ezra Pound

Every year as we near the Christmas season, my principal gives me the nod to display and sell my art out of my classroom at Arlington Martin High School.  Scores of faculty and students seem to enjoy browsing what I have as they make last-minute Christmas shopping decisions.  I stay after school until 3:30, hanging in the gallery, reading, drinking coffee and chatting with anyone who drops by.  It feels good as we wind down this semester and anticipate the holidays.  I’ll have my gallery open Monday through Wednesday this week and next.

Later tonight I plan to get back to my studio work.  My mind has been on the fly fishing still life all day and I’m itching to return to it.  With some good fortune, I’ll post an update tonight.  For the time being, I’m chilling in my gallery, listening to good music, and trying to learn more about Hegel’s philosophy.  The guest lecturer last Friday really lit a fire under me and I desire to know more . . .

Thanks for reading.

I paint in order to remember.

I journal when I feel alone.

I blog to remind myself that I am not alone.
