Every senior at the High School For Performing and Visual Arts leaves behind a legacy painting that will stay with the school. My painting is acrylic on a 3′ by 5′ canvas. May it grace the walls and inspire artists to come.
I made this painting about a year ago. Although quite some time has passed it has remained to be one of my favorites. I based it off the feeling of isolation and introspection as well as the desire to not lose ones own youth.
Often I find it difficult to express myself through words but random thoughts come to me and I place them on canvas. This is one of those examples. Totally random as is much of my art.
16 x 20 Acrylic on Canvas
This painting comes from a dream about sea life. It is 5’x 3′ acrylic on canvas. I have always been fascinated by marine biology and the fantasy of mermaids.
This painting is a combination of multiple dreams combined into one large painting which is three feet by five feet canvas using acrylics. It was my first large piece that I had in my senior show.
My dad has been instrumental in keeping a log of my art from the very beginning. This is my first real art. He says, “We must always remember our beginnings.” This art really excited my dad when I was in preschool. He saw it and said, “Amazing!” I can see how I have improved over the years and I can always share with others that with practice anyone can be better.
On February 14th, 2019, I will have my first Art Gallery Showing with two other student artists. I created this flyer through drawing and Adobe Photoshop. The show is open to the public.
