This painting is about a kid with dyslexia. The letters are the words being mixed up in his head and he is in the corner of the class because of his bad behavior. I had to interpret a poem and this was my abstract vision response to it.
"Monroe" by Sherwin Long

I did this as a part of a series of wood block paintings. I had fun doing this and experimenting with new styles and seeing which one is more effective. I feel like I am heading in a good direction because people are responding well to this metamorphosis I am going through as a person and an artist. 
"Attitude"
Medium:charcoal & pastel

I sketch I did for a friend. I wasn’t sure what colors to use so I just improvised and let the colors just happen. I had fun with this one so I decided to do a couple more for fun.
