Title of Art Piece: The Afternoon
Student/Artist’s Name: Maren Sunderland
School: Unalaska City School
Artist Statement: This painting was created for an assignment in class where we had to paint an informal group portrait completely on our own. I really wanted to capture the interaction between the people and how relaxed and happy their time was together. I focused on the contrast created by the strong light coming in the window as these friends of mine were playing cards. This acrylic painting is 16 x 20 inches.
