A High School Art Project to be done in the Genre of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Words and Paint Graffiti Inspired. Friend to Andy Warhol.
The project was to create your own Jean-Michel Basquiat-inspired piece.
She put Heart and Soul into her creation. With her recent hospital stay as the inspiration.
Used Pointe Shoes are the ‘Canvas”.
Colors of Gold and Red for China.
Ahh…fresh Acrylic Paint. Ready for Creating.
The Shoe will hold All the Scariness of being Sick.
The Ribbons will be All the Wishes and Love and Home.
Work at Home while the Pets Rest.
The painted shoes were frightening to me…but she was empowered.
With Some Get Well Flowers Inspiration.
And a “Souvenir” IV Flush to finish the piece.
Some More Resting.
Rest to Ease the Pain.
Art to Fuel the Soul.
Hoping with Each Brush Stroke that all the Scariness of the Hospital Washes Away…
Mononucleosis. Oncology. IVs. Anemia. Needles. Blood Transfusions. Pain.
Pediatrics. Hospital Stay. Fatigue. Dehydration. Red Blood Cells. Hematology.
And Quotes are included too…”You have a very sick daughter.”
“You have a Very Strong Daughter.”
Art is inspirational and healing.
Looking to the Light for the Magic.
