ART NOW S20 Drawing

Class of 2022
Art+Design Minor

I wanted to draw one of my own items that I had in my room because I thought it would be more interesting if I chose an item that meant something to me. I did a drawing of fake sunflowers wrapped in ribbon laying on its side. I received these flowers from a sorority ceremony and thought they would be a good idea to draw because I like to draw nature and flowers. Also, the flowers are fake so I wouldn’t have to worry about them wilting and could position them however I liked. I enjoy the effect my piece gives off because it could be interpreted in different ways and the viewer can make up a story as to why the flowers are not in a vase and look as if they were just tossed aside.
