Stroll Down Art School Memory Lane (Part 1)

I loved college. I loved the freedom and the possibilities. I loved learning new things and when I finally changed majors and transferred to an art school it felt like, "where have you been all my life?!" 

I still had two giant rubbermaid bins taking up room in my office, ahem, studio, filled with drawings and paintings. I finally went through everything and threw out lots of garbage. It was fun to see where I started and how far I've come (and how far I have to go!). 

I thought I hadn't used the watercolor medium before a couple years ago but I found this little watercolor landscape gem. 


I have hardly any recollection of this painting! I swear sometimes my brain is too full and things just get deleted. The back was signed and dated 3/15/99. My professor had written his comments, too, which were: "Excellent job, not overworked, good use of the medium, A." Woo hoo. :) 

Do you have any good old school memories?
