can we just imagine summer as black and white for a moment. doesn't it seem like a dream. as if every little thing I used to worry about is all gone, washed out by the past. it feels as if we can be numb from the 108* F weather that california had last sunday. anyway, i got my driver's license, so hopefully my summer will consist of roadtrips (i doubt it) instead of days doing absolutely nothing while listening to old music in the phonograph. we are going old school here with vinyls.

art student

IMG_2044 edited
taking art in high school was really just an excuse for me to allot time exclusively dedicated to doing art.i'm really glad I did take AP Studio Art senior year regardless of the fact that it does not count for any college credits regarding my Nursing major. However, I strongly believe that art allows people to grow as a person through one's conveyance of artistic abilities to a certain medium. My tumblr blog is strictly dedicated to the artists whose work truly inspire me  to reach their level of ability as well as arouse me to make a move towards a desperation of wanting that piece to marry me forever. anyway, I am showing you some of the pieces I did during my senior year.

Columbia California

IMG_4030
California- being the state to the very west of the US has an incredibly rich history. It is really fascinating since it was known for gold and cowboys before Hollywood even became a thing. I'm really happy that I live in California- not because of its history, but, instead because of the culture created from its history. I sometimes find myself amused of the very simple things in my surroundings (endless view of plains, almond plantations, cows, horses, and most of all cowboys!)
Even though I've lived here for 6 years now, I still continue to learn so much about this state and continue to discover fantastic and adorable places that are not very known to tourists. A few weeks ago...yes, i've been slacking... my family and I went to Columbia California. It has a little park with preserved buildings dating back to 1850s during the Gold Rush to California. Columbia was an actual town in which the miners stayed and mined for gold. there are still gold there and they have this little place where you can pan your own gold! I definitely enjoyed my time there!

staying inside

IMG_4099
with the increasing temperatures here in the valley of California, I sometimes wonder how I will survive the upcoming 4 years in literally still staying at the so-called armpit of the state. This projection of 4 years at university--i was compelled to write "uni" as i have heard and seen this contraction from Brtitish people and Aussies, I'm quite not sure who else use it. BUT, anyway, the point is that this contraction is blatantly unappealing to my eyes and ears. I guess the defense mechanism of reaction formation was in action for a fleeting moment -- As I was saying, it's been very hot here and the only acceptable thing to do is to stay inside and draw. And so I did. forgive me for my complete lack of ability with regards to actually scanning my work. my sister's canon powershot has enough power to shoot (ahh see what i did there! ha!)  and convey what my designs look like.
