Technical Difficulties

After storms, computer problems, and camera problems, I sometimes wonder why and how humans made it to the top of the food chain. I think it must have been due to sheer perseverance.

One of my favorite teacher memories is trying to figure out a lock on a large storage container to get some equipment-- the teacher who was helping me couldn't figure it out either. After what seemed like a long period of trying, he stood up and pounded his chest like a gorilla and made the accompanying noises. We both started laughing, tried again, and eventually got it open.
Sometimes you just have to stop and take a breather, remember that you're only a human, then laugh and start over.
So, after a few of those moments, here are the latest paintings:
