During the past few months I have traveled across the U.S., seeing more than my fair share of amazing art, meeting up with old friends, and making new ones. I started out the summer in Athens, Georgia, teaching an Intaglio printmaking course to one of the best group of students I have ever had the privilege of working with. I was on a tight schedule. We all met in the morning of Thursday, Aug. 26 for our final critique (pictured above) then ate lunch at The Rooftop of the Georgia Theater. After our goodbyes, I fit myself into my Buick LeSabre filled to the top with all of my worldly possessions. I directly set off towards Lawrence, Kansas with the goal of making it in time for my friend's painting exhibition at The Invisible Hand Gallery.
