More schoolwork!




In the tagline of my blog, I mention "what I'm learning" as one of the reasons for the blog. So sorry...you're stuck with my art projects right now, because not only is it what I'm learning, it's the only --the ONLY-- thing I'm doing these days! Bill asked me yesterday if I thought the workload was going to continue like this. I think it probably will. And of course, there's the part of me, though I'm not a perfectionist exactly, that wants to only turn in a strong effort, and wouldn't think of showing up in class without my work done! As he observed, you get out of something what you put into it... so I ought to be getting a lot out of these two art classes!

This project is in design...the assignment was to illustrate pure symmetry, approximate symmetry, and asymmetry all in one cohesive work, using only grayscale cut paper. I was inspired by a photo I took of a graveyard in Charleston, looking through the wrought iron. My photos are coming in really handy as sources of inspiration!

I think you did a fabulous job and the subject matter is quite interesting, too! Many times I wish I had put more into my art school projects than I did... at the time, many projects were rushed and squeezed in between commuting to work or partying, unfortunately. I think going to college later in life is really smart.

This is really stunning - and such a good example of all the design elements. I love that your photography is serving you so well. Nothing goes to waste, you know? Wonderful.

I'm thrilled to see your art projects!! I remember that cemetery photo! And thanks for including what the assignment was, because it makes your work even more impressive to this non-artist. I think you'll get an A on this one! :)

I love this...very appealing! With one daughter majoring in art, I am familiar with the workload. Yes, you are going to spend a LOT of time on creating beauty. :-)
