This painting was inspired by some of the beautiful hidden meadows that can be found in the north east. The inspiration and peacefulness that was put into this painting has helped develop its color and meaning. It has been showcased in the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts 41st student exhibition event, in Old Lyme, CT.
Art is something I have never felt like I have been good at. Growing up with my grandma who shares a passion for art, her, my sister and I would always paint, draw, create, and do many other artistic things together throughout my entire life. I never understood why Grammy and my sister could draw a perfect flower, and I could not. The truth is, no one can be bad at art, and each piece of artwork is perfect and unique in its own way. Before my parents got divorced, I took advantage of my childhood. I had a roof over my head, two parents that loved me, and I was spoiled rotten, and still I would complain about the little things like why I wasn't good at art. When my parents got divorced, it had forced me to grow up. I was no longer the center of attention, and was no longer spoiled. I had to learn how to do things for myself at the age of ten. A way of expressing my anger, calming myself, and coming at peace with life, was through art. Art has somehow taught me to be happy with the life I have, and to be grateful that I grew up at a young age, because now I can help others.
