School: Juneau-Douglas High School
We were assigned a portrait, and got to choose our medium. I love this picture of my mom – her character really comes through. A lot of people think its a self-portrait because she looked just like I do now, when she was young. I chose oil-sticks so I could blend for the translucent skin tones, but I ended up using mostly a sepia palette, I think to give it a timeless feel.
