The Artist and Her Work

Thank you all so much for the very positive comments about daughter's art work. We are so proud of her. It really does make us feel good to hear others, many of whom are complete strangers, say good things about her work. While I've not had time to photograph works in progress or newly acquired thrift store yarn, I do have some photos to share from daughter's art show.

Here she is with Elmo. This piece was really popular at the show and it is a treasure to us. I'm going to see about having it framed, probably in a simple black frame.

This photo shows daughter with the poster she made in Graphic Design. The assignment was simply to make a "wanted" poster. Daughter's says "I stole your number. Now answer your phone." She explained that the first sentence was written out like a phone number while the second sentence was in the format of an e-mail address. Clever. I like how she used the smilie faces for the letter "o." Daughter is known for her smiling face, so that really suited her well.

Finally, here she is outside her beloved "O. House" where she lived for the past week. Daughter really enjoyed the dorm life experience. She's such a social person. Her roommate was a really sweet girl, and the two seemed to get along very well. I hope she's as fortunate when she goes off to college for real!

Daughter is already talking about next year and a return to the summer sessions. She would also like to participate in the Rising Star program which is a 5-6 week session for rising high school seniors. The kids live on campus and attend two classes during the time. They earn college credit for the classes. I guess I'd better start saving my money now!

Seems like college classes are treating her well! Watch out. 4 more years and she's gonna take them by storm!
