I decided to paint a woman in the Italian countryside drinking wine and reading a book. I hope one day when all of this is all over I can be the girl in the painting and travel.

What is Art?

At the beginning of the semester, I thought art was subjective or only based on what people were thinking. I also thought art only had a couple of mediums like painting, drawing, watercolor, etc. After hearing, seeing, and learning about many artist's stories the meaning of art…

I am not completely sure what I want to do, but I want to explore a political issue of racism, equal rights, mental illness stigma, etc. I want to do something I feel strongly about so I am more motivated to do it, and I would have a good way of putting my point across. I plan to use my tablet and transform it into a video or gif to make it “modern”. The only concern I have is time and my own drawing capabilities. If I don’t completely like something I will start completely over, which can take up a lot of time.
