Commissioned Family Portrait
I just finished an amazing and intense 7 weeks working on my Masters of Art Education at the University of Victoria. Whew! What a wonderful journey. It has been fantastic. I met some amazing artists and educators and made some new friends.
During that time I continued to work on a commission of the family above. It is complete and has gone to its new home.
I am heading to Idaho on Sunday to visit family and to teach a workshop on pouring watercolor. I can’t wait to see my children (who are visiting cousins) and to bring what I learned into my teaching practice.
My hope is to tell you more about this and to show you what I have produced. I wanted to do that while I was in school but time ran short each and every day. I even pulled a few all nighters to get the papers done!
But that is another story for another time. . .

Awesome job, Leslie. I bet they will love it.
The painting is lovely. Studying at uni is not easy, but teches us lot and increases networking. I'd like to hear your story on uni.
I have a crash, but hopefully, I can attend a linguistics conference in Oct.
Wonderful painting! And sounds like an awesome time at the university! Waiting to see your works from the course :)
Thank you Carol! Sadami, I hope you can attend the linguistics conference. It is nice to connect with like minded people. Meera, thank you:)
