This is for anyone who has ever felt out of place, unwanted, or unloved. Who has watched from the outside, been picked on, bullied or felt bad about themselves. This is for anyone who needs a smile or just needs a place to express themselves; for anyone who has ever been hurt. This is for you.
Aaaaand here is my fourth art project for this semester:
The goal was to take a photo from a magazine and extend it by mixing and matching our paint to the colors in the image. I chose this image because it reminded me of Venice Avenue here in Florida; we used to go there as a family when I was a kid and it's just one of my favorite places.
This assignment was a little difficult, but it was fun to see if I could replicate the artist's style.
So heres a challenge:
Ok y'all, here is my third completed painting for this semester! By the way this andBrokenbut Beautiful were recently featured in an on-campus gallery show.
The Space Horse
This piece was a two-part project based on a collage I created from magazine clippings. Staying true to my love for horses, I chose a lot of equine related images. But the astronomy theme was totally unintentional! During our process crit I only had the gray on the bottom (intended to be wood) and most of the monochrome horse. Everyone in class thought the wood was actually a moonscape and someone christened it the "Space Horse" and, well, I just ran with it, lol. I love astronomy, too, so it was a perfect fit!
Oh boy... has it really been so long????? I know, this is waaaay overdue, I'm sorry. But thank you for being so patient and faithful! It's been a crazy few weeks (my life has consisted of namely home work, home work, and more home work -- sleeping, of course, is optional) and your patience is greatly appreciated. Y'all are awesome!
Now, down to business, I have some paintings for you and I'll work on posting them over this week. So here is my second painting for this semester:
We were supposed to replicate a painting/image with two different color schemes. The top one is a Monochromatic blue-violet. The bottom one is an Analogous in green, blue-green and yellow-green. This class is making me look at color, art and life in a whole new way; I love it!
Oh, by the way: all these colors are made from only primary red, blue and
yellow. Including that gray background; it's made with fake black! The
challenge is we can't use real black and have to mix ours from the three
primary colors. Fun, huh?
