Years of Change
For my Art Symposium I focused on the idea of the passage of time and aimed to capture that in my painting. I studied artist Leonid Afrenov’s work and incorporated his use of color and texture. I chose to paint from a Christmas card made with a photo of my sisters and me from last year. Every year we take this picture in the same spot at the same time of year during our summer vacation. I wanted to focus on the passage of time and how it causes things to constantly change – in this case our physical appearance as well as the scenery behind us, but the one thing that remains is family.
