time to share a project from my Secondary Education project. for this, we had to use paint and sand on burlap to show a theme from nature. i used the theme of the life cycle. i wanted to paint a new tree growing from a rotten log, but i couldn't get the log right. :/
so i made an ambiguous tree, which could be just newly growing or dying. i also used the colors in the back to be ambiguous, either dawn or dusk.
the back ground is metallic paint mixed with sand and glitter. the tree and background silhouettes are sewn on with yarn and thread. then i added the quote, "to the artist, nothing is ever ugly in nature".
finally i added some leaf beads. i am happy with the result and i'm glad to have a school project that reflects my style.
