Promises to Keep

"Promises to Keep"

14 x 11, oil
A line from one of my favorite poems. Everyone told me not to take "Dr. S" in college. They said he was incredibly hard and the worst of human beings. I dropped his class the first time before I even met him... I was scared of the man I'd never even seen. And then it worked out where I HAD to take him. But I absolutely loved him and his class... so much so that I took him twice. Because of him, I was shown the beauty of poetry.
