2) Write a response to the following in one paragraph:

  • How did you select the photo of yourself. (What made you choose this photo over others?)
  • What is the most important aspect of your final work? Why?
  • How is your work a representation of yourself and your connection to a community?  What personal qualities/traits/messages are you attempting to convey?
  • What part of your work are you most proud of? What part of your work were you most challenged by?

After completing the self portrait project, I wanted to reflect of a few aspects of the experience. One, is the photo I selected. I chose this because it was a picture of me from the Spring Formal at cotillion. This event was pretty special because I have been in cotillion for three years, and it was the last formal. To me, the most important aspect of my work is the photos behind the the main painting. This is because these photos all representing my life, friends, and family, whilst the painting of me just shows me. My work is a representaition of myself and a connection to the community because  I included a lot of photos with my friends and family members. I also have a bunch of photos of the places I have travelled to, or live in. I am trying to convey that I am very family-oriented through all of the photos with my parents and brother. I also wanted to show that travelling is a big part of my life and something that I enjoy through the photos of different places. The values of my painting is both the part I’m most proud of, and the part I was most challenged by. This is because every lesson, I had to work hard to find the exact color I used before. Also, the fact that they didn’t plainly have the color pink was frustrating, because I had to mix red and white every time to get the color. However, in the end I think it worked out pretty well. Overall, I am very pleased with the end outcome of my painting.
