We see its edge and railing, which run diagonally from the bottom right corner of the painting to just above the center of the paintings left border. On the construct is a distraught, frail, figure. It has both of its hands on its head as it screams, eyes opened wide. This figure stands right by the railing of the construct, and is the center piece of the work. Further down the construct, two ominous black figures lurk. They stand near the left border of the painting, where the border meets the railing. A horizontal horizon line stretches across the painting, starting from the point where the ominous figures stand. On this horizon line, some body of land sits, surrounded by water. A dark body of water fills the negative space below the horizon line, and a red-orange sky swirls above. Texture: Any texture implied by the way the work is painted, is illusionary. With that being said, I imagine the the work would have some type of physical texture from the way the paint dried. This work is an oil painting.

Pattern: Pattern is more clear through the way the work was painted, as opposed to obvious repetitive patterns. The work loosely reminds me of Vincent Van Gogh's works.

    Daughter to the Sky A non-fiction essay as lived by Cinnamon Spear I was born a daughter to the sky. Vast expanses overhead have become my breath. My family and I would sit amongst prairie hills studded with pine trees, consuming countless sunsets. You could see for miles and miles. The sky would flow from a crisp blue to a subtler shade of purple. Passionate pinks and oranges would come just out of that finally resting upon a vibrant yellow source. I caught myself thinking once, “This…

    2003, but this poster uses a graphic that feels more recent than that, so it is possibly a newer version of whatever was released at the start. I do find it telling that this campaign started shortly after 9/11 – while the ad itself references a natural disaster, I wonder if this was intended as a subtle way to prepare people for possible terror attacks as well. The illustration itself is quite simple. It’s a photo of a town somewhere in America – it could be any town, any neighborhood. This…

When I see the birds fly right over the horizon line, diving into the glimpse of beauty, in a moment that I’m always too slow to catch on camera, I stop and think. Think about every opportunity I have received.…

I’d been interviewed on television and spoke to youth summer camps and grade school kids. I never revealed my true identity for any of these appearances and that did peek people’s curiosity a little, maybe. But no one ever really went out of their way to find out who we were.
