Pictures of pictures: experiments

Ben had tried this - so I wanted to try it too

here's the only one I thought worth saving  - from "Malcom X" - by Spike Lee

I think it's not only a beautiful image - but also something taht we can connect with - vulnerablitly - connecting to Mom  - needing to be reassured.....   the faceless feeling of lacking power.

Thoughts of a Bachelor of Science Student, Commencement 2011 from MCAD on Vimeo.

I was MENTIONED IN A GRADUATION SPEECH!!!  totally from one of the most amazing students I've had as well - I would wish that everyone could be this enthusiastic, fun, and excited about school?

Haven't had enough?  I haven't.  I get mentioned in another one too!

Here are some BLURRY PHOTOS of my Students who graduated this year. You won't be able to see a SINGLE ONE OF THEM - but my list of graduating seniors from MCAD - students that I have had - here they are

Hey - there's my DAD!!!! - the grey haired one - 2nd from the right.

Here come my VIS/BIS Kids!!!  so pretty!

Seniors - they look at us
 more seniors - looking at us - but we know what they are looking for............
the future?

They are looking for their moms!

 here are powerful people doing powerful things - to the Annie Drop back

MFA Graduation speech turned out to be a rock sermon 

O.k.  - Here's what matters  - these are all students I've had and I'm proud as all get out because I had them as students, and I'm one of those lucky people to say - in all seriousness - that they were all really wonderful lovely people - who I'm VERY PROUD OF.
I must be the luckiest lady in the world!
