December 13th I'll be done with school. At least being a student. One thing I've learned over the past three years is that you can learn to do so much with so little, and somehow talk your way out of having to do more. The image above is taken from a photo of Kayla Hassell and Brittini Hardcastle, two girls from the Victoria Lindsay beating case in Polk County, Florida.  If you haven't heard of them, don't feel bad. A few months ago they, along with four other girls and two boys, were all over the news and youtube because the Sheriff posted the beating footage to warn parents of teenage bully behavior. I never needed a video to inform me about bullies, but the sheriff felt it was necessary. Anyway, the girls were know, for a while, and then slowly started to disappear into the sea of irrelevant sound bites and clips that pass for news. So, if you're wondering why the painting looks unfinished, you just read the answer. Images of sensational news fade and are immediately replaced by new stories even more sensational than the last. By the December 13th, you won't even know what I'm talking about, but for now, don't these girls just look precious?
