Running on the Final Lap

           It has come to this. The farthest moment of time that you put in the back of your mind, the ending to your college year. When all your art friends and yourself return back home to part take in the summer. When all your artwork would be stored away into the freshman year pile.
           Honestly, I never thought I got to this moment so quickly, creating all these painting and charcoal drawings from different moments. Then I got involved in many gallery shows and the art auction this semester. I was even awarded for all the work in put into my pieces. For what it is, I am both happy and sad about this full year semester and looking forwarded to what next year will bring up.

            Anyways, as everyone knows as an college student and AP student, your teachers do their best to wrap your year up in numerous amount of essays, large projects and reading assignments. So what I have here to turn in are a large Allegory oil painting, three charcoal drawing demonstrating the skills I learned from this class, a watercolor illustration for English Composition's remediation project, upcoming art history exam and an abstraction mix media project.

           First off, this is my Allegory oil painting piece that I am currently working on. What I wanted to depict in my painting is my personal loss of my childhood pet while adapting to the present. Of course this is reference from photographs but I used the search skill from Life Drawing when laying out the figure in the composition. Tonight I going to paint in my head and add more hints of death.

            Then, this my watercolor and gouache illustration for English so far. This convey my opinion that I discussed about from my previous essay. What I thought about these pictures of natural disaster was that the photographer was misleading the viewers about this. Emphasizing the negativity of the hurricane as vacation footage, something that is impacting upon the viewers. So my idea was the continue the cropped in photographs with the chaotic destruction, isolating the brightly lit pictures against the existing atmosphere.

           Life Drawing is pretty much getting three pieces of drawing of figure drawing or portraitures. I was able to get a number of pictures created over the break so now I have to build them up. What I learned today in class is that you should experiment with the medium, play around with it as long as you can apply it to the skills we learned in. So, to my loving sibling, thanks you for portraying for me but the original portraiture will hopefully become something better.

           Lastly, I now get to create the last 3-D sculpture out of man-made objects. This is in progress, which is just technology hot glued together into a wall sculpture. For this procedure, collaging different machinery pieces over each other to create contrast. My first idea is to have pieces of corks attach themselves to the sculpture, as if was fungus growing off it. Mostly likely will come off the top but I'll see wear it goes.  

So that's my plan so far, however I have some great news. I AM CLOSE TO FILLING MY ENTIRE SKETCH BOOK <3. I know what you're thinking, what so great about that? Well, this is the finrst time ever that this happens. Usually it is the last couple of pages that are left empty so it is a big change for me. Infact, on my last class day, May 7th, I am going to post on my vlog my entire sketchbook so see what I filled it within these two semesters. I will post the address to the video for follow, where you can enjoy or make fun of my voice on camera. Whatever works :)
