Most of the entries in this journal are ideas for commercial work: menus, signs, t-shirts. There are only a few "life observations" and, what I will call "visions."
autobiographical note, I settle in with a more secure feeling with Eric Head in
Asheville. He has a good job at Champion. I continue teaching as an
adjunct at UNC-Asheville. Teaching, I find, is something that comes
naturally to me. I credit my father with this. He taught me how to
teach. Since the fourth grade in grammar school, I had listened (halfway)
to his sermons and lectures. Inadvertently I was being taught public
speaking. Thus I had no qualms about standing before a classroom to
instruct in a subject I felt seep in my heart and soul. Any hesitation or
self-doubt lay in the feeling that I did not truly know enough to honestly
instruct. I say this about studio instruction not art history. Just
emerging from deep and prolonged emersion in a master's program in art
history, I was a river of fire behind the art history lectern. Regardless
that art history required much more time in class prep than did studio, I felt
secure and confident. At times I may have been over zealous. However
, I felt that my love of the subject required that I imbue it with energy.
I was determined, or, rather I should say hopeful that art history could gain
more relevance to my art students.
