I always enjoy going through my files and finding pieces that have been created over a decade ago. “Fourteen” is a 16″ X 20″ pastel on construction paper sketch, and it was one of the key pieces I included in my entrance portfolio for art school.
I was really proud of how this piece turned out. For starters, it was one of the first pieces I had completed after about a four year break (I wasn’t able to take art until my senior year). I was excited that I finally was grasping the concept of creating a three dimensional feel from a two dimensional paper. I also was working on creating lead lines through composition and repetitive forms.
