August has been rushing by with a cruel gusto! Displayed are some items from my sketchbook, some I've been meaning to share for quite some time. I've also been working on my beetle painting, which is almost finished so I hope to share that soon. The day job at DIA is tiring and time consuming, but I'm still trying to enrich my bus rides and breaks with drawing and reading, as well as food and sleep when necessary. Time is just stretched thin and is about to get thinner as I start school for teaching certification next week. These are trying but exciting times. I'm ready for my favorite season of autumn, which will be upon us soon.
