I don’t like to make art -- I love to make art. Whenever I am painting something, it’s like I’m in my own world, and everything else around me fades away. I get obsessed. I never want to stop working on a piece. The bell that rings for second period is a stop sign in my mind. My first piece of art this year is a pencil drawing of an old record player. My dad brought it home to me one day and I instantly fell in love. Music is a passion of mine and nothing intrigues me more than something old or vintage. This piece is important and inspiring to me because it wraps up several of my passions into one piece.
