Back in SoCal

  Hello all,
  Well, I'm sorry I've taken so long to post a new blog since my trip!  I guess I'm still in denial about being back to "real life" after my trip.  AND school has started back up again so I'm plenty busy with that.  This is week three of the semester.  But before I get talking about school, here's a sampling of photos from my trip!


 Big Ben!

Super delicious fish & chips in Bath!

Sheep at the B&B in the Yorkshire Dales!

Abbey ruins in York!
 Cream tea near Bolton Abbey, Yorkshire Dales!

Hobbit-ish tree near Bolton Abbey!

Typical charming pub in Stratford-Upon_Avon!

The real "Lady of Shalott"painting at Tate Britain in London!

  Yes, the trip was so good that I felt compelled to use exclamation points after each of those photo descriptions.  Sigh.
  For further details feel free to ask any questions about my trip:)

  Other than that, as I said, school is back in full swing so that is keeping me busy.  I'm teaching an Animal Drawing class for the first time at OCHSA.  Pretty cool!  Also teaching beginning figure drawing and the art elective class, as usual.

  I also have an illustration assignment for a small publishing company that I've been working on.  I've given them the rough and the final is due in a couple of weeks.  Maybe I'll post something from that next time...
