This artwork piece is a handmade wooden and plexi-glass box. It’s filled with faux moss and flowers. This is a box of wonder, the wonder of having outside captured inside. Many elements of art are present especially form and texture. I created this piece out of a wooden ham box, recycled faux flowers and moss. Supplies from my wreathe making collections, as well as reused plexi-glass. I have a specific patch of flowers behind the fence in my yard that I adore. I wanted to capture that earthy calm tone in my art. My goal was to create something new. I feel that I accomplished that goal. Overall, I learned how to use a nail gun, how to cut/precut recycled wood and how to see my ideas in different perspectives. The piece turned out differently than my ideal, initial plan but I am extremely content and proud of my work.
This is a piece full of resemblance. It is a water color painting. It resembles how the women of Ghana carry their tribes on their shoulder by being such a large source of how clean water travels. My mother grew up in Ghana and has told my many stories and very few images of these wonderful women and I whole heartedly believe this women are the backbones of their community’s and tribes.
This piece is a calming mountain range. I used acrylic paint and watered down acrylic paint l. When you look at the blue ridge mountains from afar you can see so many beautiful hues of blues and purples l. Each layer is a different feelings, each color gives you tranquil goosebumps. A sight that i’ll never be able to forget.
This artwork is called converging worlds. I created this piece with acrylic paints. It’s simply just a warm colored galaxy with a few shooting stars. The principals of art that are shown through are specifically the values of colors. The big idea behind my art work was to have a warm far away place. In the future I will recreate this piece with more patience and time.
This piece of artwork is an ocean sunset. It is an acrylic painted sunset with a shadow painted mountain. The. and of this piece is “take it in”, The reason I chose to create a sunset is because I recall a vivid memory of a trip I took to Seattle and sitting on a beach with my sister enjoying the moment and taking nature’s beauty in. The big idea was to relive a memory.
