I created a piece that was inspired by a painting in the NC Museum of Art. I took the element of silhouettes of people and altered it to the silhouette of a landscape. My painting is based off of a picture I took at a youth retreat as the sun was setting. No picture or painting could do justice to how beautiful the sky was, but I attempted. I chose this long canvas to give it more of a panorama feel and to try out a different kind of layout. It was hard to get the colors to look how I wanted them to and to make the orange water look natural because it was a reflection.

- What tools do you use to create art? How do these tools help you in creation of these pieces?
I computer art, I use the photoshop program a lot to morph and manipulate images. This program has the tools to allow for changing the photographs to look the way you want. I also use paint and nontraditional materials to create non-digital art. Depending on what medium you choose, you can achieve different effects and outcomes. I like using different tools to switch it up, keep it fresh, and add pizazz.

My favorite painting was The Cliff, Ętretat, Sunset by Monet. I really liked the cool colors and the brush strokes in the water. It was very calming and it made me want to row a boat in that water.
This Corn Harvest painting was one that I didn't like at first. The super dull colors just threw me off and the shape of the broccoli trees was just unsettling. After looking at if for a long time, I decided the river and horse were nice and I grew to like it.
