This weekend, my church took it's annual trip to the mountains for a retreat. For the ten years I have been going, I've always brought work with me. This year, though, I decided to take a gamble and not bring any work with me. No grading, no homework, no cell phone (gasp!); just a couple of books, my Bible, and my painting supplies.
Ever since I got this new job, I have struggled to find time to make my own art. That's one of the things I want to make sure I make time for, so throughout the weekend I carved out time to work on two paintings (one below my original goal...)
