Business and Art

I have been rather silent because I have been working endlessly in the MBA program at Carleton. I am soon entering the winter semester, and I must say I am enjoying it. It is extreme amounts of work, but I am learning essential skills that are readily applicable to the real world.

As a Fine Arts graduate, I thought that I would find the business material dry or difficult. However, if there is one thing that I have learned from taking on this program it is that my thirst for knowledge applies to all facets of knowledge. I thoroughly enjoy learning information and applying it. I enjoy communicating, whether it be through visual means or through writing. I believe that no matter what career path I take that I will find it satisfying as long as there is a challenge and that I can apply my capabilities.

In other news, I will be exhibiting two paintings at the Carleton University art gallery, who is having a show that is open to all Carleton students. I just varnished them and prepared them for hanging. Here is the Signal Hill painting I had been working on previously, varnished and completed.

Unfortunately I have not been making any new art at all since I have started the program, I was unable to receive any funding and have been working while attending school to support myself. I miss making art. The anniversary of Sierra's death has came and went and I itched to express the emotions that have been rolling around inside of me. It will have to wait for the time being. I am hoping that all of the things that I accomplish when I finish this program will allow me more free time and money so that I can focus on art in my spare time. 

I wish you all the best, hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year. I will try to update soon with some interesting business news and opinions.
