In 2016, I became the Dean of Students at Venture High School and in 2018 I moved into a principal position at Venture Academy. The move into administration brought with it an increase in responsibility and work hours. I still tried to maintain a sketchbook and draw or paint when I could, however, art was relegated to a lesser role in my life. I don't regret the decision to move into educational administration. It feels right and I hope and believe there is purpose for my service. However, I've realized that I still need a creative outlet in my life, so I've made a more concerted effort to make time to draw and paint. That means I've had to sacrifice time I used to spend on other things, but mostly that means I spend more time with a sketchbook and less time time watching Netflix or movies. No, I still don't have time to complete any major works of art, but it feels good to sketch and to share my art with a larger community via social media. Following are some of the drawings/paintings I've done over the past month or so. I post new art more regularly on Instagram at @Wasden_art. Feel free to follow.
