So, for those of you who have been reading my blog for a while I'm sure you've heard me ramble about my senior AP portfolio where I have to have 12 breadth pieces and 12 concentration pieces. Well, here are my concentration pieces, in order of completion. My theme is prepositional phrases. It's a bit different than what most people do, but I didn't want to be ambiguous or too "deep". I wanted my theme to be something simple and self explanatory. I think if you click on the images you can view them larger, but I don't know if that depends on browser type or not.

1.Behind the Camera - watercolor & ink
2. On Top of - watercolor & ink
3. At the Party - watercolor & ink
4. Amid Others - watercolor
5. Reflected in - watercolor
6. About to - watercolor
7. Looking Inside of ---Ok, so this one isn't exactly finished... In fact I just started it, but my target deadline is to have it finished at the beginning of February since it's pretty big.

All of my pieces (I'm proud to say) are 15x20 inches or larger. It makes me feel smug to work this large. If I were working in oils or acrylic I would probably try to do something of epic proportions, but since I'm primarily working in water color I can't bring myself to work larger than 36x26.

Out of the above I'm taking 1, 4, 6, a conte crayon drawing, and my oil painting (from last year, which can be seen below) to the senior symposium at a local college, and then 6 and perhaps 2 (depending on whether or not I finish 7) to VASE competition.
But yeah. Balancing art, my AP homework and projects, and studying for my academic competitions (which I placed at this weekend!) is why I no longer have time to wax philosophic on my blog... Not that I did much of that anyways. :P

A lot of the people in my pieces are friends and people that I know IRL, but if you guys have a cool idea or concept for a prepositional phrase I should do, drop me a line because my creative juices are starting to run dry. Or if you guys want to be IN my concentration and you have an awesome reference picture of yourself that'd be cool as well :)



  1. You're so amazing! I wish I could draw like that. Stick figures are my "artwork", haha! Ready for exams? UGH! Good luck with the yearbook!

  2. Wow, those are watercolors? They're really impressive! I thought watercolor was always blurry and wispy looking (yours is far prettier!).

    I always love to be painted! Ya know, just cause you asked; I'm TOTALLY not egotistical enough to ask completely out of the blue. XD

  3. Very cool stuff. I like the fact that you're doing prepositional phrases. Everyone in my painting class is trying to make their art appear far more significant and meaningful than it really is, so I can appreciate the honesty of you art. I really do love your stuff, though. They set a very warm but simple tone.

  4. I really like all of your art. Your idea is so unique, and I definitely love that you aren't trying to be all super deep or whatever just for the sake of doing so. I love the hair in the first one. :)

  5. I think my favorite one is the bathroom scene.

    And unless you want to do a picture of a tired looking, scrawny Asian in front of a computer within a dark room I don't think you want to do a painting of me. :P
