I’m back after a few weeks of silence. I’ve been busy trying to actually complete some plates for various exhibits, classes, and most importantly, the one year review of my diploma project/independent study on November 4. All the diploma students (7) will gather that day at the botanic gardens to talk about what they have accomplished during the past year. I’m excited and nervous! I’m finishing up my presentation and gearing up to meet the others and talk about my experiences in the magical Burren! Attached are some pieces in various stages of completion—Cowslips, Spring Gentians, Harebells, and although you can barely see it, Bloody Cranesbill. Back to work!
