More from the sketchbook

My high school English teaching cousin Ali recommended a list of books for me to read while I'm out west, and the first I tackled was Life of Pi----I didn't really like it that much, but I came up with a cool idea for a future painting based on this quote:

It was my luck to have a few good teachers in my youth,
men and women who came into my dark head and lit a match.

Isn't that wonderful? I'm pretty sure Ali is going to be that teacher to a lot of her students. She's so great, I can't get over it. 

And then of course it's fall back in Michigan and I am BUMMING OUT that I'm missing the sunflowers!
