It's official: my beautiful big sister Emily is engaged to her more than perfect boyfriend, Ethan. The ultimate E and E. I and the rest of the family couldn't be more happy about the news. These two creations were done by my ecstatic parents who can't stop gushing :)
Congratulations Em and Ethan, we love you two so much!

I saw flowers popping up in Millenium Park a few days ago. This crazy winter/spring weather is confusing the flowers and the birds that won't stop chirping. It has been a mild winter, but I still can't wait for spring, much like the birds and buds. Sunshine, green grass, colorful tulips in the medians...can't go wrong when colors start showing themselves after a few months hibernation. In this spirit I've been migrating from strictly black and white drawings to adding splashes of color here and there. Drawing with color is rare for me, but I'm finding the exploration real satisfying. Here is a look at my color progression, the first four are from last semester, the rest following are from this past week.

Some updates on things happening in ceramics. I took this first piece out of the kiln today after putting terra sigillata and slips on it. It will go through at least one more firing before it's ready. The second piece is still drying, waiting to be bisqued and fully completed with all its additional parts.
