View From My Window : Assessment

I would like the start off with saying how frustrating that final work was to complete. I mean it was interesting and new to do in my opinion, but I’m a perfectionist so it was difficult for me to do it just right.

I was relieved to see how some of my classmates pointed out my work and gave me awesome and agreeable suggestions for it to improve a little more. But I was glad to hear that they liked it. To me, they were more of positive and honest feedbacks which is what I wanted to hear of course. Thanks for the suggestions and honest feedbacks!

View From My Window : Critique/Assessment

To be honest, I thought this project would be pretty easy to do at first, but as we started to really get things together, that turned my whole perspective around.

This is my first project in this class and it provides a lot of hard work and focus. I didn’t think it would be that hard. When I mean hard, I mean frustrating, but I guess that’s what art is suppose to be. It’s not always going to easy breezy. Shockingly I enjoyed the hard work (even though it took me 4 1/2 half hours to do the final work and made my hand & fingers cramp up) it was all worth it to get a decent grade.

I learned that things like this take patience and time to finish. Also, good planning each step successfully. I got to learn more about the economy and unity in my images that helped me see what belonged to makes everything come together as one, but also have less of the meaning to what it is. (Less is more).  Even the two famous words in he class, stable & amibigious. Those two would be the main vocabulary words I’m going to be using this semester.

I’m sort of excited for waits coming next!

A View From My Window : Research

It’s 7 in the morning and it’s a perfect opportunity to describe what I see through my window. Obviously, the sun is still rising, but I can’t really see it rise because it’s blocked by the trees and houses. But. At 6 something a.m. , I can see the colors of the sky change within the two hours. The blending of the colors that appear and the outlines of the clouds sometimes. The colors usually look purplish, orange, reddish, yellowish, or a little pink. It’s amazing to witness how the darkness of the sky transforms with popping of gorgeous colors. Anyway, in the same direction of where I can see the sky are the tallest trees on my street. I would say they’re in my neighbor’s backyards, whom are across the street from my house. I’m shocked til this day by how those trees stayed put through the mighty storms throughout the years. Even shocked that they weren’t cut down because of how tall they are and that can lead to danger of them falling on to the houses. But I HOPE that doesn’t happen. EVER.

Today is pretty windy, so, I can watch the branches sway side to side, left to right slowly or wild like. With the sun still rising, I can see the outline around them better and the details of the inside more from the sunlight poking through it. Moving on, I can see the tannish color side wall of my next door neighbor’s house and part of his concrete front yard. The wall has a long on-going parallel lines which it looks like a rectangle from here. I even see one of my across the street neighbors (that’s in the same view of where the trees are). The house is light blueish that has the same triangle and square structure design as the other houses on my street. Plus,  I can clearly see the cable wires cut between the tan and blue house. Sometimes you can spot a squirrel running along the thin wires. I would say i can enjoy staring pass this window at time to time.
