Wearing the Gown for the Third Time

Standard

The last time I wore a cap and gown to graduation was in 1985 (29 years ago!), long before marriage or kids, when receiving my MBA from Wharton Graduate School. This time around, my husband and two of my three children were there to cheer me on as I received my diploma for a Masters in Fine Art from the Academy of Art University. It was such a rush walking on stage to receive my diploma. I have to admit, it never gets old. What should I major in next?

Only one more class to get my MFA

Standard

For those who don’t know, I’ve been working on getting my MFA (Masters in Fine Art) from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.  They have a great program and I’m finally taking my very last class this semester (Abstract and Interpretation).  Pictured below my last textbook ever!  Can you tell I have “senioritis”?   Can you get that in a master’s program that isn’t four years long?  I’m looking forward to having some fun, playing and experimenting without letting that pesky “realism” get in the way.
