I started out thinking i wanted to make a painting that was muted in color . I had to stare at it for a long time and about two months of having it in my room i changed my idea completely and added some bold colors.


This is a painting i made for Lily Schauffler

Coming to the End

Woohoo!! It has been a long year for art. As i was doing my concenctration pieces I thought that they might all look really random together but i was happily surprized that at the Art show i thought they looked quite dashing. I have had a lot of fun this year exploring many ideas in this class.

Here is what i have been working on all year..

my weekend

Last wednesday i went to san francisco to visit Elizabeth Brown, visit USF and UCSC. On Friday my mom and i went to Santa Cruz to visit the school and the art department was amazing!! It was on top of a hill, surrounded by trees, and overlooking the ocean. Art is the second most common major at the school so that made me feel really good and the art studio buildings were really cool. They had slanted tops made out of glass so natural light could get in, and there was some really cool work you could see from the windows. Secondly i went to moma in San Francisco and saw some really amazing paintings, a really cool rothko, magrite and some excellent matisse pieces. The exhibition that was there was a photographer called freelander whose pieces were interesting too.

So i have been brainstorming non-stop and it isnt helping that much. I've figured out what i am going to do for one of my pieces so thats good, at least i have a start. I have four small canvas's and i think i'm going to do for images of the same thing but in different styles or colors. As of now i think i'm going to do a picture of the Greek goddess Aphrodite/Roman goddess Venus.

Lately i have been really inspired to paint, which is almost always a good thing but all of my ideas have had nothing to do with my concentration which sucks. I have been thinking of my pieces and i think that my next two i should make small so they can go in the small portion of my concentration but at the same time i dont really like to work small.. I'm really uninspired at this point and i'm trying really hard to think of ideas but i have yet to do so. I'm thinking since i always like making stamps i might buy some more safety cut and do that, and then think of some kind of interesting background to do with it. Maybe i'll mix realism and pop art like i did on my mary piece.

I decided to continue working on my encaustic pieces i started before the break. I'm going to use both of them in my concentration but i'm not sure if i like them, but i've been working on them a lot so i'm using them.
