Speaking of my critique, I was at the ceramics studio until 12:30 am trying to finish the mugs I had made. I hade this wonderful goal of making at least 30 mugs but after breaking a few and messing a few up I only have 21. My teacher had told me that if I wanted to be good to turn in 10 mugs, but if I wanted to be great to turn in 30. I was going to try and make 40 so I could be superb, but time got away from me. I still made about 30, I just didn't keep all of them. Hopefully I'll get a couple of photos of my slightly-more-completed mugs to post on here.
Oh, PS: I am going to try my hardest to minor in art. I just love this class too much to stop here. :)
(Sigh) I have a meeting to get to in about 25 minutes and then 4 classes today. I am SO tired. I have at least one blog post that I'd like to do once I upload the pictures from my camera onto my computer. I went to a lecture here at the Creative Arts Center given by a sculptor and it was very interesting. I got a few pictures of his work and I'm going to try to write about it.
When I'm not SO tired that is. :) I'll be in touch!

(ahh chinese food...how I love thee. )
Have a lovely week. :)
Not very exciting. But I still like it. Plus it reminds me to be aware of missions and Christians in other countries. :)

That really doesn't have anything to do with this post except it is the inspiration for my title: Dogs, Dogs, Dogs. Because that's what we're going to look at. These are some pictures of our weimaraners, who are unfortunately no longer with us. Weimaraners are absolutely beautiful dogs. And they're SO intelligent. They're scary they're so smart. You can find stories about the crazy things they do because they're just so intelligent and they're sneaky. They're a handful, but they're wonderful companions because their personalities are so fun and they're very loyal.
I took these pictures at least 3 years ago. I remember it was snowing outside and we had a snow day from college (woohoo!) and I had nothing better to do with myself (like who does homework on a snowday???) than to take glamour shots of our dogs and the puppies they had recently had.
This is Jumper. He's the papa dog. He's a handsome devil! And the funny thing about him was he knew he was being photographed and would usually hold a pose for me until he heard the camera click and then he'd try to get off the coffee table where he was sitting for his picture.
So let's talk about a different dog now. While I was pretending to be Wegman I decided to do some glamour shots of my sister's dog, Django. He is a mutt, but he's so pretty. His markings are really symmetrical. I've never seen such a symmetrical dog!
You know, studies have been done that show that the people we rate as "most beautiful" have extremely symmetrical faces. I think that's why I always thought Django was such a handsome boy. That and his ears were too big for his head. Oh so cute!
I choose to never forget the men and women who died tragically and heroically in the World Trade Center, on the Pennsylvania flight, and in the Pentagon 8 years ago today. To all our service men and women and their families and to the families of the victims of 9/11/2001, our prayers go out to you.
God bless America!
