What items did you choose to represent you? What does each one represent?
I chose my varsity letter because I have played softball for as long as I can remember and last year I made the varsity team which is one of my greatest accomplishments. I included the necklace that I wear everyday. It has a silver heart that was once my mother's and also has a jade stone. This is special to me because my name was suppose to be Jade. I picked my Jeep key because my Jeep is my first vehicle ever and it has gotten me through the past years. Lastly, I chose a Germany magnet. Over the summer I went to Germany and on this trip I really got to know who I am as a person and what I want out of my life. The trip was life changing and one I will remember forever.
What do you find most successful about your piece and what might you change?
I really liked how the background formed and how the black lines around the varsity letter popped. I truly love everything about this painting the only thing I would change is the process. When I was creating my colors I did not make enough of each, which meant I had to go back and try to match the color that was already on my canvas. Next time I will make a lot of the same color to ensure it is there for touchups.
What medium did you pick and why?
I chose acrylic for this piece and honestly it was through elimination on what I wanted to use on my other project. I knew I really wanted water color on the other project therefore this one got the acrylic.
