A few months ago, I got this crazy idea that I would get a Ph.D. from two departments instead of just one. Between the extra course requirements and my second round of departmental exams, I've been struggling to find the time or energy to paint when I get home. I just want to apologize to my watchers and let you all know that I have rearranged my schedule and finished my departmental exams, and that I should have more time now to get back to painting. I am working on The Cruel Sister
(below) and hope to finish it within the next couple weeks. So far, I am really delighted with how it is turning out, and I think you will be too.
