The race is on...

I'm not 100% sure who I'm voting for so I took a look at this website:


You enter your stance on the various issues (like "Where do you stand on the issue of Federal funding for health coverage?") and the website shows you which candidates most closely match up to you overall. Obama, Hillary and Joe Biden (er?) all match up with me pretty closely. What a shocker! The more interesting thing is that the website gives you voting records and quotes to reference for each of the main issues.

Collage Class Project #5

I'm really proud of this one. The project required us to bring in a reproduction of an old master oil painting. So I choose At the Beach, by Edouard Manet, one of my favorite painters. The challenge was to translate the artist's use of texture and color into our paper collage.
Here is a photo of Manet's piece, then my collage:

And a similar detail from my collage.
