Fall Semester is Over!

The Fall semester is over and Winter break can finally begin! This semester had to of been one of the best semesters I've had since starting here at SJSU. I got to fly on a plane for the first time in my life, I went to Canada, and I also took my first Visual Development class.

Taking my first Vis Dev was such a bug learning curve for me. I poster my kitchens in an earlier post, and now I have my Gary Soto Treehouse paintings to post. I spent these last few weeks figuring out my design and composition, but honestly I tried to take my time with each step and when it come down to painting them... there was still a lot of info I hadn't figured out and that I honestly don't have the painting mileage for yet. But I know with time, I will get there.

I can say these treehouse paintings are a turning point in my painting and thought process when it comes to approaching my work. I will definitely be posting a lot more during the winter break.




Just a shout out to my friend Wendell who helped me understand lighting a lot better. I have a ways to go to get to his level, but I know I'll get there with a lot more studies and practice. ;) You should check out his stuff! http://wendelldalit.blogspot.com
