Thirty Things You Don't Know About Me

#12 - I really wanted to apply to Stanford. But my dad wouldn't let me.

He had a very good reason. We couldn't afford it. With five kids in our family and only one finished with college, I understood that we couldn't afford it. It made sense. I am pretty sure I would NOT have gotten in, anyway.

I won't tell you which college I went to as there is a good chance it might be featured next week in this Challenge. But I received a great education and learned more in those four years of college than I ever dreamed. I am so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to pursue a great education at a great university. (Even if it wasn't Stanford.)

I was lucky enough to marry a Stanford graduate and I have one son who also graduated from Stanford. I have lots of Stanford t-shirts, I cheer for their football team and if I ever decide to go back for a graduate degree, I will apply to Stanford. Better late than never.

I have two spots open in my South Pasadena workshop this month. We are painting large canvases and I would love it if you could join me! Click here for more information. Next week I am releasing my 2015 workshop schedule. I am coming to Cape Cod, Atlanta and Richmond in 2015! Plus you can paint and stay with me in Ventura, CA at the beach house!

I am also offering Monday Online Studio painting classes beginning October 2014! Join me each month as we paint boats, roosters, glass, beach scenes, umbrellas, etc. with a palette knife!
