This was our final assignment this semester: "Pretend you've been commissioned to do a painting about a sport for an office or a publication." Hmmm....what sport to pick? I know! Let me pick something that has tons of angles, straight lines, and round edges to paint -- all of which are a pain to do. Billiards!! Perfect. Anyway, it seemed like a good idea when I first thought of it. I had some fun putting it in a grid pattern. A very different kind of assignment, especially for a landscape class. But it's all good. I learned things with this painting, and that's the whole point, after all.
