4.Eleanor Campbell5.Norman Rockwell 6.Emily Winfield Martin As I continue this journey through art school, my appreciation for certain types of art has become more prominent. I'm an illustrator at heart. I love the flatness of Mary Blair's style, and the beautful colors on the cheeks of children at play of Eleanor Campbell and Norman Rockwell's illustrations. My favorite modern take it Kelly Murray and Emily Winfield Martin's vintage styles.


Daniel and I are going to London in March! I am going with an Art Appreciation class, and he will be going with a World Literature class, but we will be traveling as one large group. We are so very excited!

To add to our excitement, Miranda made this comic for me. And, I think it is simply hilarious! Ha!

recipe: apple pie tarts

What you need: 2 boxes of Pillsbury Pie Crusts  3 large apples 3/4 cups of sugar 2 teaspoons of cinnamon 6 tablespoons of flour 2 tablespoons of butter
Makes: 24 Tarts
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Step 1: Using a cookie cutter, cut an even number of small circular crusts.  Place half of the cuts an inch or so apart on a cookie sheet or stone for the bottom of the tarts. Set aside the other half for the tops to use later.
Step 2: Peel your apples, and chop them into small pieces.
Step 3: Combine the chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, flour, and butter into a mixing bowl. (Use hands to mix ingredients.)
Step 4: Place a spoonful of filling on the bottom cuts.
Step 5: Place tops on. Using a fork, mash the two cuts together.
Step 6: Cuts small slits on the top of the tarts.
Step 7: Cook 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Bon appetit!
