Painting Class, Circa 1994
In 1995, I earned an Associates degree in Fine Arts. One of the classes was painting. It is not too unusual for an Art major in college to take a painting class or several. One of the assignments was to research an artist's life and work and give a 10 minute or so presentation about him/ her. I picked Paul Klee. I did my speil. After I did my speil, the instructor said, "Your work reminds me alot of Klee's." When he said that, I guess I frowned, or something, because he was quick to add, "I didn't mean that as an insult."
