The choosing of an art piece to write about was difficult. I was stuck between a couple of pieces, which were “Flowers in a Basket” by Osias Beert and “Cagnes sur Mer” by William H. Johnson. I choose “Flowers in a Basket” because I relate to it the most. I heard about floral design and I choose to take that class in my 10th grade. Ever since then my life changed for the best. In that class I heard about Future Farmers of America(FFA) and I signed up. From there I entered floral arrangements into fair competitions. Doing that you had to stay on the straight and narrow. I had to make good grades and have good behavior. If I have never found out about that class I wouldn’t be where I’m at now. Another reason I choose this piece because it reminded …show more content…
(Banquet means breakfast.) He rarely signed his paintings, so they couldn’t figure out how long he has been painting. The medium of this painting is oil on panel.

The focal point of the arrangement is the white peony and the pinkish lily in the center of the arrangement. There is Chiaroscuro through the brightness of the front and darkness of the back of the painting. There is some shadowing going on in the right side of the painting behind the basket.

There was so much going on that I didn’t know where to start. There was a lot of beautiful paintings and sculptures. I felt like I was going through a corn maze. I would go through one door and end of somewhere else. I kept getting lost and I was getting a headache. It was pretty loud for it to be a museum. The person I bought my ticket from made this big deal on how great their light show was, but when I went to see it, it was not as good as he said. There was some works that were not kid friendly, I wish they would have put up a cautionary sign beforehand. If I knew my experience was going to be like this, I would have chosen a different museum. Next time I am definitely going somewhere
