The Art Term Paper is finished. It's been creamed.
I enjoyed writing it. I learned a lot and I was amazed to actually see beautiful themes emerging from individual paintings once I actually spent extended periods of time examining them.
The 'extended periods of time' was the grueling part. I don't want to have to pull the stay-awake-till-5am thing again. Once was enough. It provoked the strangest, most uncomfortable subconscious searching slumber I have ever experienced, too.
I'm really rather proud of this paper. I don't know how well my prof will like it seeing as how I was not able to find direct commentary sources on the paintings. But I did my best and I think my interpretations are accurate.
Alliteration, pun, nuance, and word innovation came quite readily to me while writing this one - don't ask me why.

"robe red and richly..."
"lends to Perugino's painting a Paraclete-centered-ness"

I guess it was the banana bread I snacked on all night.
