In the past couple months I have continued to focus on my goal of getting my undergraduate degree. It has taken a toll on me professionally but rewarding on a creative and academic level. On the one hand I have had to turn down and turn away from some gigs. There is no regret but I feel ever so thankful for the opportunities I have had instead. This academic experience is definitely offering me new perspective and experiences that I am already starting to put into practice. To my surprise the effects to new methods in painting are coming in equal part from my Art History/Writing and Studio courses. I may be a bit late promoting this:) but toward the end of my Spring Semester I got a painting accepted into the Annual School of Art Exhibition for graduate and undergraduate students. I would like to invite you to stop by and check it out. The show will be up until May 26th.
The work I submitted is an acrylic portrait painted on wood. I started the work for a group show but as it progressed, it started to look like a good portfolio piece for my upcoming academic endeavor. This was one of the works I submitted along with my application into the CSULB Illustration BFA program.
