In an art class I took my Freshman year of high school, we were assigned to paint portraits of each other.I remember thinking that the project sounded quite dull compared to our previous artistic exploits. If truth be told, I love drawing portraits, but painting them is another thing completely. Painting takes a lot of patience, and even more perseverance. While I'm an essentially patient person, I get bored with paints almost as easily as I get frustrated with them. So, I painted my friend, Shelby, with bright, unnatural colors, hoping that this new twist would keep me interested in my assignment. It worked. I was going for a sort of surrealism effect, and, quite honestly, I think it turned out all right.
