I am so happy that I have started classes. I adore my math instructor for he is just so clear and makes things simple. The art history class (Asian) is just so fascinating! We are going to be going through most eastern cultures, from India to Japan. Last night we were looking at pottery from the Neolithic period. I never knew that spending 5 years of learning ceramics/pottery would contribute to anything except nice gifts for my friends and family...however, I no trouble answering questions on the technique and function of the art shown when the instructor asked for ideas. The more amazing part was that I was correct! I am falling in love with Art History again. Sometimes we forget our callings to explore other interests or they just get lost in everyday life. I am sure I was born to surf and be an art historian... I've gained back the passion I had for the subject when I was 21, but now have the patience of a 31 year old to complete my goal.
Above is a excerpt from my notes. It's a copy of a couple fish that I saw painted in neolithic bowl
