Road Toward Success, Muthanna Yaqoob Jan 2015

Road Toward Success, Muthanna Yaqoob

The Hilltop Review

Road Toward Success is an oil on canvas painting with dimensions of (3.25 x 4.33) ft. It depicts how a farmer will only see his/her fruit of success through continuous work and long endeavor. Just like the farmer here in this painting, a graduate student won't see his/her fruit of success in the form of a thesis or dissertation but only through continuous study and research, digging into science like this farmer is digging into the ground to plant the seeds of success.

Little "Sister", Raina Khatri

The Hilltop Review

My mom always called our family poodle my "little sister." Last fall at the age of sixteen she had to be put down, and I was unable to get away from school to be there for her. Instead I took time from my science education PhD work to draw this tribute to her. This portrait, in marker, shows her grey hair, cataracts, and playful stance, even at the end. Life events happen during PhD work, and it is critical to find balance between honoring the past and respecting your future.
