My Artist Statement

In Art class we painted someone who you knew the best about. We had to express there personality, feelings, Identity, culture, emotion,Facial Expression, cloth, pose or what they like to do. I wanted to do someone out of my family so I chose my mom because I knew my mom the best. I was able to express her with not much difficulties. I just had to ask her a few questions and straitly I knew what I wanted to do draw and paint.

The title of my painting is Fujimom.

The progress I have made during this unit was panting the background with the things that my mom likes and not just the colors I like.  I have overcome my challenges by trying to figure something out by myself first. If this did not work I asking a friend or the teacher.

I think the weakness for me was to paint the drawing with uniuqness. It is because I did not want the face to look like a actual face of my mom and I wanted to make it look unnique but still express what my mom likes to do.

I think my strength is trying to express my moms personality. It is because I tried to show people what my mom likes to do and her feelings towards it and thats why I drew the heart to show her feelings and the peace mark to show that she becomes peace when she sees thing and dose this kind of things. I used blue for the piano and the peace mark because when she sees the piano she becomes happy and calm and she thinks that blue is a calm colour. I made the background colour colorful because my mom is such a happy and cheerful personality and when I see her she reminds me of a rainbow. I made Mount Fuji red because when my mom sees Mount Fuji she thinks of the colour light red.(I was going to make the red a bit more lighter.)

From this drawing I tried to show my moms personality. I also tried to show what my mom likes to do and how she feels when she dose this kind of things. I was able to all of this things by using colours and objects. I used a range of colours to express my moms personality and the objects to show what she likes to do and how she fells towards this things.

I enjoyed making this painted and I think I could have made it a bit more unique next time but overall I really enjoyed painting and drawing so I had fun.
