Italia Reunion

Hey guys! Today I'm going to our HUF (Harding University Florence) Art reunion! For some of you who didn't know, I went to Italy last summer for a month to study art. Not only did I learn a lot about art and the Italian culture, but I learn so much about 10 wonderful girls and our parents for the trip, Dr. Keller and his wife Sally. We all grew so close and I can't wait for all of us to reminisce about all of our adventures. Plus, my friend Jessica wants to buy some of my pottery (!!!) so I'm really excited about that too! I hope everyone has a great weekend! Ciao!



This is a little "kick-in-the-butt" video for anyone who needs it.

All I can say is wow.

Back in Black

I've really fallen in love with the idea of a black accent wall. The black makes all the colors and textures in the room stand out, plus, adds a lot of "drama" (I don't usually say that word, but it works in this sentence). Now if only the painting policy in the dorm would change...


And it begins...

For some reason this room just really sets me in the mood to create. That big graphic painting and the chandelier of paper just gets my creative juices flowing! Today is my first day of class so I need that extra boost of creativity to get me through the monotonous first day of syllabuses and attendance policies. Hope everyone else has a nice day!


Settled... for now

Hey guys! I'm back at Harding and all moved into the dorm. Here are some pictures of the room and of an art project I did with Shannon's and my initials. It's a work in progress so I'll post pictures as we change things. Enjoy!

This is what you see when you enter...

This is my desk area which is to the left in the picture above.

The bed you see is Shannon's and you get a glimpse of our "kitchen".

The bed you see here is mine along with a better view of our kitchen.

This is Shannon's bed.

And here's my bed.

This is the art project I started Friday night. We needed some art between our closet doors so we chose our initials.

Moving back

The famous Harding swings

Tomorrow I'm headed back to Harding for the fall. I'm so ready to get back into the swing of things. I'll be sure to post pics of my new dorm room. As for classes this semester I'll be taking Painting I, Printmaking I, and an Independent Study in wheel thrown ceramics so I'll have tons of projects to post about. Also, my friend Jenn and I have a project up our sleeve so stay tuned for upcoming posts regarding the "Tripp" art piece.


Pocahontas Colorguard

Here's a little clip of my life for the last 3 weeks. I filmed this on Thursday and the girls were completely worn out by then. This is a small clip of the 3rd song of their show. It's one of the slower songs with easier work, but it was the "cleanest" shot I got that day so here it is!


Shame on me

Sorry guys! I've had a hectic couple of weeks and really didn't have the time to post. I've been working with the Pocahontas marching band by writing the colorguard portion of their show and teaching it to the girls. I've also been painting the boy's room here at my parent's house which has been so time-consuming due to all the hiccups (more on that later). Plus, I'm in the process of packing for school. Maybe once school starts I'll actually have some down time... haha, yeah, right.


Oops! I dropped a name.

My brother, Matthew Walton, is doing a Senior photo shoot today and I went to help him set up his portable studio. He does AMAZING work and I thought I'd give a little shout out to him and his awesomeness. (And no, I'm not biased! He even calls me his worst critic.) Here's a peek at some of his Senior pics as well as his new photos from Scotland and London. Enjoy!!!

If you want to check out more of his work, there's a link to his photography website on the blogs I follow, or you can follow his blog HERE.
