A little waterhouse from last weekend

I am not the best blogger this month--I'm sorry! I appreciate your views and comments anyways. In all honesty, I have not made the time out of stress from many different areas of life. But, hey, I got into the Bachelor of Fine Arts Illustration Program here at BYU! are some 30 second figure drawings I dug up recently for the review process. I think they're from last semester. I will put some final projects up by the end of the week, at which point I will probably be in Georgia for the last time in a long time.

But spring is here! This season means that my family will be making a much awaited move to St. George, Utah: a pleasant Southwestern town full of red rock and beautiful sunsets.We're pretty excited. Spring also means more morning walks, even more Joanna Newsom, and new goals, including a nice little makeover of my blog, still forthcoming. I'm testing out this title at the moment. I know what you're thinking, "But, Maddy, you're not Russian! Nor can you claim to have any ties to Russian culture or language!" And rightly said, I am but a Hungarian/Swedish mix, but I just like the idea of this strange, distant land. It's literature, landscape, weather, and general air of dismay has risen as this huge interest to me, for reasons I am still unaware. I read this certain line "under the Russian sky" in Pushkin's work lately and I liked it. I might bag it, but for now it's kind of working for me.
