The presentation date for this painting is May 11. Gulp!!! I’ve had to resign myself that it just won’t be finished. I am not one to miss deadlines, but this is one that I just will not be able to adhere to. I will hope that my committee will understand, and approve me for graduation anyway. I believe that I can get all the characters at least started. But, that is about as far as I expect to get. I still have to write my thesis up and gather all my presentation materials. The task feels daunting.

The comforting exchange is that I have learned A LOT through the experience. (Mostly what not to do- LOL)
