Still Life with Wine & Fruit

This is a painting I made a few months ago. It's simply called "Still Life with Wine & Fruit." It's in my living room now. It will probably be included in my next art show.
I used it for a background for an illustrated poem that has been submitted to Literotica. It's a rather serious poem called "Discrimination." I hope you enjoy it.

Here's what I painted today. It's called "Recovery." I don't currently have a digital camera right now. The picture is from my cell phone, so it isn't the best quality.
The painting is a 24"x36" oil painting. It will not be included in my upcoming art shows due to the size. Since it is an oil painting, it will take a few months until it is ready to show anyway.

Attending University of Phoenix

As many of you know, I am taking classes online at the University of Phoenix. I'm finishing up my bachelor's of science in psychology. I don't intend to seek employment in that field any more. At this point, I just want to finish my degree before my daughter gets her degree.

If you ever consider getting your degree online, you should be aware that there is a lot of writing involved. I have an individual or team research paper due every week beginning with the very first week of each class.

Overall, I think the classes are easy. My final grade for my last class was 99%. There really isn't a valid excuse any more to not have a degree or at least be working towards one.
