32 I wanted to express the essence of the figure- a lonely girl, consoling herself. I remember wanting to make her seated, but not wanting to care about perspective. Working in an abstract way helped me to express myself more. I was able to enjoy painting, mixing color, making brush strokes, and controlling line.


34 This was the last piece in my concentration. I remember being so obsessed with shading in the different shapes with paint. I really taught myself a lot. I was trying all different weights of line, contrasting warm vs. cool colors, trying to get as many shapes to pop out as possible.
