Senior Concentration: 12/12 - THE LAST PIECE!


The time spent creating this body of work went by way too quickly!
Look for a future post about the concentration as a whole!
I really want to reflect on how this process changed me as an artist, but I'm seriously pressed for time right now!

I think that this is a little bigger than 16"x20"?

Senior Concentration: 11/12

Looking back, these paintings make me really emotional... like gosh.
Not that they're that good, I just miss all of the time I spent painting.
I miss the people I sat with, my teacher, my high school.. just everything..
I'm only a freshman in college, so who knows how I'm going to react when I'm older!

Senior Concentration: 10/12

These final pieces have become some of my favorites.. 
From start to finish, I definitely can admit that I improved.
Sadly, I haven't been able to paint for a few months now.. and I have no idea when I'll be able to get back to doing what I love.

Senior Concentration: 9/12

Definitely one of my favorite pieces (oh my gosh, I sort of like something that I made??).
Still sort of bothered by some aspects, but I think that if I tried to fix parts, I would end up making this piece worse!

Senior Concentration: 8/12

Yet another piece that I'm not a fan of.. 
I think during this process I hit a rough couple of weeks where my inspiration was low and I wasn't too motivated to work.
I may work back into this one eventually, but for now it will be left alone.

Senior Concentration: 7/12

I'm sorry for my absence; college has consumed every second of my life, and I haven't had any time to update my blog!
I'm going to try to get back to updating every now and then!
While I sort out my life, here is piece seven from my senior concentration!
This may be one of my least favorite.. it's quite sad...
