Clean Slate

30 July 2013 I have a certain love for the feeling of 'brand new'. Today I felt like that as I woke up from my midday nap.

Formal Hall no. 2

22 July 2013 Our paints have arrived! Well, kind of...more like we arrived to the paints. We met outside the art room in King's College at the start of class and walked down to Tindall's Art Store to purchase our brushes and paints. Just the smell of the store and the beautiful display of the [...]
