Mark Flood (No Lace)
I've been thinking about Mark Flood's paintings lately (above: Wait Here, 2010). I was happy to see him return to humor that isn't indicative in his lace paintings of the last decade (although the lace black panther I once saw in his studio remains one of my favorite pieces).

His overt text references sum up how I feel right now after grading and grading and meeting and meeting and grading students for what feels like every last minute of the entire month. Sometimes it's great to have it spelled out, especially at 1:39 AM.
