This week our theme is CHANGE!
RJ – Change Of Luck, Penny and pen on paper —
I think RJ’s piece is a beautiful reminder to the viewer that you have the power to change your luck by changing your perspective. I like the simplicity of line and stipple along with the proportion between the penny and the drawing. The enlargement of the drawing insinuates that making a change can increases the rewards for taking control of your luck!
Emily – Stress/ Move Forward – pen on paper –
“Change is very relevant to me at the moment and I’ve found I’m awful at dealing with it, I get lots of anxiety and stress over it, yet I still always have this need in me that I want to be productive and moving forward in my life. So my pieces are just me realizing that it may be confusing and stressful for me but to move forward I need change“
The energy in Emily’s piece reminds me a lot of her photos from FAIR challenge. The movement and use of bold neon color express the chaos of change and the resulting difficulty to focus. I can feel the anxiety and uncertainty of inevitable changes she is trying to express.
Amber –Wishes – Mix Media (acrylic, graphite, pen and ink) on paper
For this week’s theme I decided to literally change a previous Art Challenge piece from something that I was not too happy with into something that I am happier with.
One of the hardest lessons for any artist to learn is that it is OKAY to make mistakes. And yet a better lesson, those mistakes don’t have to be mistakes.
Next theme: FEAR!
