Artwork




2009 is upon us. New resolutions and goals are made and determination rises like yeasty bread. I have not seen much of Anna lately, nor played with her, despite our holiday break, because I was busy preparing for a test. Two roads diverged, and we both seemingly took separate paths. I wanted you to get a glimpse of what we see on our paths. One path leads to beauty, the other to...I'll let you decide. So Friday night, I'm in the medical school, walking down the hallway. The lights are off, except for a few guide lights which cast a yellow, cadaverish glow on the floor. To compound my loneliness of a night studying hormones and prostate cancer, I looked up on the wall to see the artwork of Andreas Vesalius (this bottom piece on the left). But the grass in always greener on the other side of the hill, and that's where Anna's path has led. She has spent the last couple days painting and I wanted to post her artwork before she could protest. None of this is for sale so don't ask...

Did Anna do those? Those are amazing! Way to go Annie, and Spennie for being the cheerleader. Hope the test went (goes?) well.

WOW!!!! Anna I had no idea you could do that! Those are awesome! As I was scrolling down through the blog, I saw those and wondered if you had done them. Then I saw the third one and wondered if Spencer had painted it. I was somewhat disturbed...
