I volunteered to create some extra pieces for my Painting/Drawing/Photo class in Rome. I was really excited to "respond" to the photographs that I had taken. I wanted to try and create pieces that echoed the Medieval era, but also experimented with color and line in a more contemporary way. I created a diptych of two of my favorite photos that I took while I was abroad. These pieces are mixed media on canvas. I experimented with different paints, in combination with pastels ( my favvvvvorite ) and I also used items like Euro coins and feathers. I am not an art major, but I still have a blast creating pieces that are fun and not so serious.
