JPG Challenge: The Formula

I think this photo is perfect for the formula. My hands lead the viewer's eye into the picture. My face is the main focus, and the window behind me leads the eye out of the photo. This picture also has wonderful, dark eclipses and merges.

JPG 4: What Are You Obsessed With?

I am obsessed with Christmas. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved the Christmas holiday. I love the decorations, the festivites, the lights, and of course, the presents! My favorite part of Christmas; however, is realizing how important family really is. Every Christmas, I become so appreciative of the people and things in my life.

JPG Challenge - Silence in Movement

Water is something that can be both silent and moving. While water can be calm and still, it can also be full of vigorous movement. In a small pond, like in the photos shown above, even when the water moves, it is still completely silent. Even if the water is not moving, the nature around it moves. The wind blows the leaves on the trees and the animals move from place to place.

Replica of Diebenkorn's Painting

This piece was completed in white oil pastel on black construction paper.

Water Glass

I never got a chance to complete this. I don't like that the leaf in the middle of the painting looks like it's outside the glass instead of inside it.

My Family

On the left, is a picture of my mom and I that was taken during the summer. Of all the people in my family, I am definitely closest to my mom. She knows a lot about me and really understands how I'm feeling most of the time. I know she cares very much about me and that I can talk to her about anything and she will listen. On the right, is a picture of my golden retriever, Taffy. My family has had her since I was eight years old and she has since become a permanent part of our family. She is the sweetest dog I have ever met and always cheers me up when I'm down.
