In my piece, Reflections, I researched the artist Paul Signac. In my assignment I needed to borrow a skill that the artist used and make it my own. The technique I used was pointillism and Paul Signac also inspired my subject since he would paint subjects from where he lived. I thought to paint a scene from the state that I live, Alaska. I wanted to make this piece to capture how beautiful Alaska is. The process was very excruciating because I had to put dots of acrylic paint to create an image. I learned patience from this painting. I wanted to send the message to not take for granted the beautiful landscapes around you.
