What I Obsess About...

These are some things that I obsess about. The first thing is organization and having everyhitng in the right place. I have all of my stuff organized from biggest to smalest or tallest to shortest. I also love the color red and I have as much stuff as I can in red. Both of my favorite teams are red, Marlyland Terps and Washington Capitals. This was a homework assignment and I decided to have a little fun so thise are the things that I obsess about as crazy as they may seem.

These are some pictures that I took of my family. All of these are unposed and they had no idea that the pictur was being taken. This was for one of the homework assignments and we had to take pictures of family member without them knowing the picture was being taken. The first one is of me and my dad, the second one is me and my sister, and the last one is a picture of my grandparents.

Leaf in Glass Painting

I unfortunately could not finish this painting but I was able to get most of it done in the time given us. I decided to put the leaf in the glass because I do not usually involve nature in my paintings. Also, another girl was working on this painting with me and we both agreed to do the leaf as te object in the glass. My main focus was for it to look like a glass cup and not a 2 dimensional painting. I also wanted to show the light showing through the glass and capture the shapes that form inside of the glass.

What brings you joy?

I did my joy series about running. I know how it feels to have it taken away. I had a stress fracture for about eight months and during those eight months I could not run at all. I felt miserable and I missed it. That is the main reason that I chose to do the series on running. I ripped pieces out of magazines and used a picture that I found on my computer to try and get the right colors. I then glued them on the paper where I had drawn the outline for each color.

Summer Paintings

These two paintings are paintings that I did over the summer for my kitchen. My mom bought these two sugar and flour holdesr with this design of the sunflowers on them. She wanted me to create paintings similar to these pots to put in the kitchen. These paintings took me a week to complete. THis was not steady wokring through the whole week, but I am very detail oriented and I wanted to make these look perfect.

Old Paintings

These are some paintings that I did last year during our fast mini painting section. Both of these were done in two class priods or less.

These two paintings used up more time than the two above them, but thes also were done suing more turpentine so they are smoother. All four of these paintings were done last year.
The painting on the bottom right is a painting that I dd of myself and this was when I had a stress fracture and coul not run. I was trying to portry the sadness of it by putting my running shoes and my boot in the picture.
