yesterday was my last first day of school
i have one more semester of college and i’ll be thrust out into the “real” world.
i can’t wait to graduate,
but i savor every last experience before it all becomes a distant memory
of which i’ll reminisce one day.
this semester i will be taking advanced painting,
which is essentially a graduate student course!
this means that i can work freely on my own projects
and get critiqued whenever i need it.
i want to focus on doing a complete body of work this semester
instead of individual projects.
my idea is to do a series of paintings that are made with different parts of my body.
i was inspired to do this when i took a 20th century art history class.
one of the women we looked at, janine antoni, i believe it was, painted with her hair.
i have been wanting to do this for a long time
and think it would be a different and exciting experience being a part of the painting,
as opposed to being distanced by a paint brush.
and it’s a great excuse to get messy!!
stay tuned for updates and photos of works in progress.
