hroughout this year I created artwork that gave the viewer a sense of peace and love. My main question was “how can I show innocence through my artwork?” My perception of innocence is the ability to be pure in the soul, for instance a baby because she/he is born without sin. By expressing my perception, I created symbols in my pieces. For instance symbols such as; a rose, a baby, and a girl on the swing. I also used colorful backgrounds to show peace. The reason I created an art piece with a baby being the seed of a plant is because most people look at babies and think of them as being innocent and peaceful. The baby being the seed is the symbol of growth that not only relates to humankind but also nature. I love the fact that I used a variety of colors and a variety of tools in order to finish my piece. I tried to explore my capabilities of using different tools to create my pieces.
