Very inspirational and insightful talk, Dot. I like where you said you want to be "shrewd observer and a plain and direct writer." And I'm sure you know by now the degree means nothing. I didn't learn to paint a stroke at university. Luckily the man I studied under at the community college was not afraid to teach us to paint. Sometimes, I feel I wasted a lot of time at university, but I did learn a lot about the history of art. Getting my degree also meant I actually finished something!Thanks for sharing this!
(Kimber, Sorry I'm so late responding - just found your comment.)Thank you for confirming once again what I have been told. Glad you had one good teacher. BTW- Hope you get a chance to tell him one day!
