I Have Arrived! Or maybe I just moved.

So a lot has happened. I am no longer in the Plano school district, heck I’m not even in Dallas. We sold our house and bought some land in Spring Branch, Texas Hill Country, and built a house. Ok, we didn’t build the house, we had some people build it for us. Not very well I must say, so it is good that I have those old building trade skills to dust off. My wife said that I can build a small/large studio here as long as we can share it. I’m not very good at sharing, but I agreed. I have been very busy with the Navy and even started the master’s program again. I think they are trying to get rid of me, kicking the babies out of the nest, so to say. I have procrastinated enough and I am hoping to be done in December or sometime in the spring. Funny how someone that doesn’t like academics that much, sure spends a lot of time in school.
Anywho, I have been doing a little bit of subbing as I work on the touch-ups on the house, and have even made a few videos for youtube. If I could have all 3 of you that follow this blog check this link out and subscribe if you haven’t already, I would appreciate it. Well, hope to get more content out there soon, as my wife has told me that this WordPress template is too old and needs to be updated, so stay tuned for the new upgrade and hopefully an easy launch of the new site.

And look at that sky behind the house. Only in the hill country of Texas can you see that.

Sup Mr. Payne,
This is one of your old art students! Nice house there and hope you continue your youtube journey! You were honestly one of the chillest art teachers I’ve ever had, so I’m glad you’re still at it. I’ve continued art (not as much right now as I have to study for finals) and would say you helped me have the love of art as well.

Post some new photos of your house. We’d like to see the progress.
