My amazing class, working on our murals.
 This mural, which has the hand prints and signatures of the whole class, translates into the name and year of their unique class. As furniture design majors, they take all of the same classes together for all four years of the degree, and so they become very close.
 The murals are in an outdoor space between the woodshed and the design studio where the students spend most of their time, and therefore they will be able to see their work regularly.
 The first student to sit and pose for me, a delightful girl, and then all the others wanted portraits after I drew her.

 I had the great honor of being taken to a Buddhist shrine, on a mountain top near Xi’an, where I made a portrait of one of the monks. It was an incredible experience!
