Firehole River Springs

Firehole River Springs
Yellowstone National Park

I am rounding the bend on completing my Master of Education in Art Education. I defend next week. Just a few more days. Yeah! 
Now you may wonder why I have time to blog in all of this. Well, that's because I am working with large files and as I sit and wait for them to transfer between computers and to render, I thought what better way to spend my time than with all of you! And it helps me to stay awake while I wait.

In my previous post, I showed the artist statement that I did as part of my program. It highlights the thesis project I have been working on. This project is the journaling of my process of painting Yellowstone National Park over the past year. 
Firehole River Springs is a part of this project.
You may have seen it in my artist statement as well as me painting on location. 

My defense will consist of an expanded version of my artist statement, which will be 10 min long, along with a book that I wrote and designed about my process. 

Almost done.

Wow! The way you interpreted the firehole is wonderful. You've created a beautiful, colorful abstract painting amidst a traditional landscape scene, I love that! It's very creative and expressive!

What a magnificent, almost unearthly scene!!!
I just watched you video of your artist statement. It is brilliantly done. I wish success in completing the defense of your presentation. Leslie, I think you have it NAILED!!!! :)

Yes, Kathryn, it is unearthly. I felt like I was in a star trek movie while painting it.
Thank you so much for all the encouragement you have given me. You have been such a wonderful friend. We'll have to get together again soon.
