I can not believe there are only two more days until 2010. 2009 has been an a very full and amazing year. Some of the highlights for me this year included: finally getting a Democratic President after two way too long terms of Bush, starting grad school at the San Francisco Academy of Art, my son turning sixteen (how did that happen?), participating in the San Luis Obispo Plein Air competition, and teaching. I am looking forward to a wonderful 2010. These were my favorite three works from this last semester.
