Today was an important day for me. I subbed at a new high school for me and it was not the best experience. I have been changing the past few years; my goals; my desires about what I want to do...can do...and I'm not sure if it is teaching kids. I'm still deciding, but every day I have a negative experience it brings me closer to a decision. I am dismayed at the way things have relaxed with the youth in so many areas. I am saddened that they seem to care less, and there seems to be few consequences that affect them or inspire them to push towards a more mature way of thinking. YES, I believe that 16 and 17 years olds can display a level of maturity for their development level...sigh...
So, I had a planning period that was an hour which gave me time to do a little 4x4 painting that does quadruple duty! On Dana Marie's "Inspiration All Around Us" this pic sits this week. She asked for a photo, and I volunteered, so this is actually one I took of a duck at the Botanic Gardens last summer. It isn't (once more) my usual subject matter, but it was a nice little NON LINEAR break for me, so I painted it in acrylic. This also fits into the color scheme for Dana Marie's other challenge blog titled "Judging a Book by it's Color"...AND...I can post it on Daily Painters of Colorado...so that brings it to quadruple duty for me! YIPEE!
We are only one away from the latest goal for my next give-away. I'm looking forward to choosing from my followers!
Here is to Happy Painting Days to us all!!
