Transitions’ is such an evocative theme, what compelled you to submit for this issue?  

I paint people, portraits, and the human body. Transitions are such an important and everyday part of being human. We are constantly evolving physically and emotionally. For me, Transitions captured a big part of what it is to be human. 

Do you have a routine for creating art?  

I begin by drawing from life, these are often quick and rough. From there I work from both drawings and photographs to build up my paintings. I spend a lot of time looking, stepping away from my work, turning it on its side, anything to not lose sight of what I am making. Also, I like to be working on more than one piece at once.

What is most challenging and most rewarding about turning real life into art? 

The most challenging part is continually keeping at it, working through failures. As well as remembering to enjoy successes and not immediately losing sight of them after they have happened. The most rewarding part is having an outlet, a means to communicate and translate emotions that seemingly cannot be articulated.

    While the program is in place, that’s not a difficult process, it is only when you want to remove the hack that you are going to find yourself in trouble. Even though it is fairly easy to see what is going on the first time the program is launched, it is not immediately obvious how to undo the modifications made

It is a targeted Excel add-in that allows those who prefer the old look of the 2003 menus in the newer versions to implement it. It functions much like a standalone standalone add-in, meaning that it does not bring an unwanted look to other Excel tabs, both within and 05e1106874 cathwon
