Geek Love Painting for Literartistry Show.

Fly me to Austria.

Oh Austria. Oh memories. Oh love. I went to Europe during the summer and had a great time. One of my favorite places was Austria. Me and my bf stayed in a cute little bed and breakfast in the town of Salzburg, where Mozart was born and where part of the Sound of Music was filmed. Whenever I think about my trip and think about heaven, I think about those three days I spent there. I was in love in one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen. Theres this feeling that I can't figure out, but that I can't forget. Its' very specific. I've gotten that feeling both times I've gone to Europe. Maybe its freedom, whatever it is it makes me want to fly.

Corey Helford Gallery "Paint By Number's"

This is a piece I did for this cool show. I loved working on it. I remember paint by number kits from when I was a kid. It was exciting to add my thoughts to this piece. The piece is based obviously around the title, "California". I thought of the idea after watching the news on how it had snowed in Malibu. The people were collecting snow and keeping it as if snow was some new fangled idea. The random oddity of the situation really did it for me. I didnt really have a set plan of action. I just went with what I felt. I like to tackle pieces in that way, I feel like a kid!

Mute Girl

I have a little 6 year old student in my class named Yvonne. In all the time that I've known her she has never uttered a syllable to me. There are shy people, but Yvonne isn't one of them. Her actions are rough and some would call her a little mean or socially inapt. She can speak, but refuses to use her real voice with anyone, but her immediate family. She intrigues me. My mom was a mute 'til she was 7. She never said a word either. It made me wonder how it would be like to live in their world. How their lack of speech would affect their development and the way they were forced to interact with people. Communication is a really interesting topic to me. I wonder how it would be like if everyone lost the ability to communicate, verbally or physically. I don't think we could survive. I couldn't even begin to think of the mass chaos that would come to pass.
I didn't speak much at all early on in elementary school and was put into ESL (sheltered class). Some stupid ladies decided that the reason I had to be in there was because I couldn't speak english well enough. WRONG, they wasted a year of my schooling. I spent much of my ESL times doing other kid's english homework. It was miscommunication Miscommunicationg or lack of communication messes things up.
