End of the semester

Its the last week of school here at Stephen F. Austin. Myself and my students are more than ready for summer break. I'm leaving for a quick vacation and then back on the job hunt. While I applied for several teaching positions and was a finalist at the University of Houston, I am nevertheless unemployed. However, this is not unfamiliar territory. I worked as a freelancer for several years in New York. I was not always sure where the next paycheck was coming from or if there was even one. I am in the mindset to work on my own art however I don't have the financial means to do so yet the list of ideas keeps growing.

If anyone wants to share their winning lottery ticket with me I'd be most grateful.

Even so the semester ended on a high note. My first student exhibition opened without too many snags and was a huge success. Thanks to Gallery Director Christian Cutler for donating the posters and to Professor Gary Schott for assisting us with installing 32 photographs in a most challenging environment.
