I don’t know where the time has gone but it’s already almost Thanksgiving and my birthday and then Christmas! So I’m a little confused as to how it got to the holidays so quickly, but I am happy to be here!
Today I got a surprise letter in the mail from my Grandma and Grandpa in Ohio! It completely made my day. If I have learned anything in life, it is the importance of the little things. So I want to say I love you Grandma and Grandpa! I know you will read this soon :)
I have less than 3 weeks left this term and I can’t believe how much I have done and learned here so far.
I send my love to everyone who is close to me yet so far away.
Finally finished! There is a sad story behind this beautiful face though. Some people many years ago found this girls body dead in a river and they thought she had the most beautiful face so they make a mask of it so her beauty would not be lost. So good old Charles Bargue drew this death mask and I don’t know how long it took him, but after 5 weeks I’m happy to say she is now haunting my wall, not my easel. ( I’ll upload a better photo later!)
