I often wonder how an image comes together to create one full piece of art through all of the different elements. Therefore, exploring more purposefully putting pieces together to create a final art piece is how I went about this question. Whether it was painting square by square or creating a collage of multiple pictures. I think that art means more when it has significance to my life. Accordingly, I want my art to have a feeling of comfort, so I chose to incorporate meaningful people and places into the making process. Incorporating my uncle, New Orleans, Vail, CO, and a collage of family and friends with my street sign overtop helped me achieve my goal of using different elements to create one piece while also having the art be meaningful to me.
