It’s official! I have neglected the blog for a whole month! Yikes!

The question becomes, what have I been doing in that month? It’s been quite a whirlwind, actually but I had every intention to post on a regular basis. You know what they say about good intentions…here’s an abbreviated list of recent distractions since my last post:

– spent 9 days in the Dordogne region of France at a workshop studying the prehistoric cave sites, with all their amazing art;

– returned to the United States to a broken fridge and water-damaged floor (new one getting installed soon);

– began the final two graduate studio courses required to complete my MFA;

– installed an exhibit at Southeastern Community College in Whiteville, NC as well as gave an interview to the local cable channel and presented a lecture on my time in Europe. Check out the press release and interview here:

Press release for exhibit: “Process and Meaning”

Interview with Sue Hawks at Southeastern Community College

– writing my thesis, preparing my oral presentation to my committee and putting the finishing touches on the body of work, fifteen acrylic/mixed media paintings;

– enjoyed a family reunion weekend in Raleigh, NC, my old home town;

– did some encaustic paintings for fun (see attached);

– and slept!

Needless to say, I will be attending to the blog on a more regular basis, just needed a hiatus to recover from jet-lag, culture-shock and graduate school burnout.

Check back soon!!!
