The Final Countdown

I have had Europe's song, The Final Countdown, in my head for the past three days.

This is the last week of school at Cranbrook. Everyone has to be out of their studios by noon. I guess it's past noon. Anyway, they are done.

That means we have one year. One year left here. Only one year to go. We're half way there.
Uh oh. No I have Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" in my head. Awesome!

Anyway. The panels are done. I have a little over a hundred! I think that is going to be plenty.

The lilacs are in full bloom right now. I have some sitting on my desk, and they smell amazing. It's wet a drizzly outside and I am fully enjoying it. One week until New York and I couldn't be more excited.

We are storing one of Heather Blackwell's paintings for the summer. It's a portrait of one of the students in the sculpture department. Heather is an amazing painter. Amazing. She brought over the painting last night and I think I must have studied it for a half hour. I wish I could paint like her. This painting is 6 feet tall, and I think we are going to hang it in our bedroom. I'll get a better picture of it once it's hung up...

That's all I got :)

The Final Countdown always reminds me of Gob from Arrested Development.

That painting is quite nice indeed, I wish I could paint like that too (or at least have the room in my house to paint something that big)

I am envious that you have lilacs! How I love the smell...

Gob + Final Countdown + magic Tricks = pure comedic genius.
