The painting I painted was from a photograph I took in my dad's flower garden he's been working on. It's one of my favorite flowers of the group. I sat on the ground waiting to leave and I decided to get a picture of the beautiful flowers we have. I tried working in my liking for flowers into my painting. It's the flowers inside the flower garden. It didn't come out as I wanted or planned, but I'm learning to like it.

Last year, I wasn't able to take an art class, but I did have Lyrics and Literature with Mr. Greer and we'd have projects where you could be artsy with it. In this picture, I had to depict what I thought a scene looked like from the rock opera The Hazards of Love by the Decemberists. We could only listen to the words and create what we imagined, since the band never made any music videos for it. In this scene, a powerful nymph who saved the boy from death and raised him is angry because he wants to leave the forest to be with the one he loves. However, his adopted mother wants him to stay forever since he owes her his life.

Art for me is a way to get away from stress. I have always loved art and I will always love it. My favorite things to draw are animals and characters and scenes from anime (Japanese animation) . My favorite animal to draw is the wolf, but it's difficult sometimes. I have learned that you don't have to be the best in the world at painting or drawing. There are many ways to express art from music to writing and painting or drawing. Art can make people happy! So I would like to share my art with you and others.
