Well, almost. Yesterday was my final day of teaching. We still have two weeks left of school, but from here out, it's testing, cleaning, and parties. No more classes! I find myself bouncing when I should be walking.
As promised, the middle school mural...
It's come along farther now, but this is how it looked when we sent in the picture for the contest. The turtles and eels are more detailed, and we have some great, stripey lionfish keeping the puffer fish company around the coral. I think the kids did a really excellent job with the gradation on the water - we were painting on gravel at the time, but I think the little white spots look like light in the water.
Also, the second of the auction portraits.
