I began by Sketching out the picture and choosing what colors I would use and where. I didn't want to use the same type of flower, or flowers that grew in the same habitat for instance, to represent the differnt paths in life I could take.
I used tropical flowers, and more indigenous flowers too.
When looking at this I'm sure the average eye would see something like it, average, but if you know me as not only an artist but a person you can understand it so much more. Senior year has been one of the roughest years for me. I've been given many opportunities and been forced to turn them down, as well as hurdled many obstacles. The fact behind the flowers is me (obviously) not so much hiding behind, but coming forward, and finding myself through the opportunities and obstacles I face. The butterfly represents my freedom, freedom to choice who ever I will become and where ever I will go.
