  • Halloween Party

    The student government group threw a Halloween Party this past Friday. Halloween is apparently a very important holiday for art students. I didn’t realize that there was going to be so much pressure to come up with a clever costume. We had about a $100 to spend on decorations… I think that we did quite…

  • Yarn Garden and More

    I had the opportunity to visit a new (to me) yarn store in Portland this weekend, with two ladies I recently taught to knit. Having only been to a few yarn stores myself, mostly the ones in the Salem area, it was a real treat to visit a larger yarn store. The Yarn Garden was…

  • The Pumpkin Patch

    Here are a few photos of how the Willamette campus looks right now. Someone decided to decorate campus this year for Halloween, and the grounds are covered with pumpkins and other spooky paraphernalia, such as fake cobwebs, plastic tarantulas, brooms, and rubber skeletons. The most scary thing about it is the potential mess of pumpkin…

  • Book Review: Sir Charles Grandison, Volume 4

    In order to write a review, or even a summary of this volume, I was forced to look back through the contents to recall what important events happened. I was relieved to discover that I was not mistaken in thinking that not much really happened over the course of these 350-odd pages. It begins with…

  • Figure Drawing Epiphany

    Some of my professors had started to complain that my drawings weren’t specific enough. I had no idea what exactly that meant. However, I was able to finally pin Harvey Citron down, and he showed me what they meant. It was something of an epiphany for me. To illustrate: here is a drawing that I…

  • The Moon that Broke the Curse?

  • Week 7 / Early Week 8 Pictures

    Here is a mix of some Week 7 figure drawings, as well as some assignments that are due this week and a couple of drawings from today. First up, the figure drawings. Same model as last week. I’m not sure why, but I have a tough time drawing her. She seems to have a very…

  • Weekend Update

    Hey, that’s a catchy title… 😉 Yesterday there was a gallery tour through Chelsea. We visited about a dozen galleries there. The really amazing part, however, was that we only needed to move between three streets to visit 12 galleries, and that we skipped more than half of the galleries on those three streets! The…

  • Flower Basket #1

    Well, I think it is safe to say that the Flower Basket Shawl makes a quick, enjoyable knit. After starting the first of three such shawls just yesterday afternoon, I have already finished it, and it is blocking as we speak. It was a clear, well-written pattern, with rather clever construction given the fact that…

  • Only in NY

    Famous Person Sighting: I was strolling through the Met today with Tara and Loren when we happened upon Kofi Annan. He and his wife, Nane, were there enjoying a special exhibit of 6th Dynasty Chinese artifacts. – Jeremy

  • Finally Some Finished Projects

    Well, by now my mom is in the air on her way home, so I’m back on my own. To console myself, I decided to post some photos of a few recently finished and barely begun projects. Next up is the Juliet Pullover. I love the finished fabric and the drape in the sleeves, but…

  • Happy Birthday Julie

    Julie, I just wanted to tell you how much I love you and that I hope you had an excellent birthday. I miss you. – Jeremy
