We've been back in Moscow for a while, and today it was back to work for me. After dropping off my artwork for our annual faculty exhibit, I stopped for lunch on my way back to campus. The service was slow, so I did a little sketch of the view from the window. After the big snowfall yesterday that closed all the schools, the temperature has risen ... it's very slushy out there.
I teach architecture at the University of Idaho - design studios, architectural graphics courses, and a professional practice course. One of my passions outside of teaching ... and music, and plants, and mycology, and ... is observing and understanding the world through sketching with various media, such as pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolor. Passing along the same skill and interest to students is a goal I've pursued through my teaching here in Moscow, Idaho, and through an 8-week study-abroad program in Rome each summer.
