The book I received for the Art show is titled "My Home" and it is an adorable story that sends the message that it doesn't matter where you live as long as you are loved there. The moment I read it I was flooded with memories of my own childhood and all of the places we called home and how they will always have a place in my heart. So for this show I started with a sketch and then sculpted the drawing as a bust but I decided to make the sculpted girl with her eyes closed, remembering and feeling her childhood home. I dyed her hair the same pink color as the title of the book and carved out an oval in her chest and then sculpted a little house with a tree behind it and some bushes and flowers in front. It is super tiny and hard to photograph but you get the idea and I also incorporated some purple flowers in front of her almost as if bittersweet tears made them grow there. Then I placed her under a glass dome.
