YES…NO…or MAYBE? Defending my thesis!

YES…NO…or MAYBE?  Defending my thesis!

I had my MFA dissertation presentation today (called a Final Review at the Academy).  In front of a group of three professors, I had to present my thesis, my artwork and the concept behind it all.  Though I was well prepared, I was still nervous.  I am happy to say I passed with flying colors.  I received some great feedback and direction for my future career as an artist.  I am looking forward to mulling this advice over once I stop celebrating.  Now it’s just one more month of class, six more paintings and I’ll be wearing a cap and gown again at a graduation ceremony.  I can’t believe it has been 29 years since the last time I did that!

Only one more class to get my MFA

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.
