Student/Artist’s Name: Jeanette Kognang
School: Lathrop High School
Grade: 11th
Artist Statement: This piece is made for and dedicated to my best friend. My best friend is an incredibly patient and gentle person. He enjoys playing chess and loves learning about history. He has always been my constant. And I wanted to make a meaningful painting for him. It’s his dream to travel to Venice, Italy and ride a gondola down the Grand Canal. He isn’t an artistic person in the traditional sense so I wanted to visualize and bring his dream to life. This is going to be a present for his 16th birthday.
Artwork Dimensions: 9 inches width x 12 inches length
