High School Paintings

29 Jan

I loved painting in high school. I looked forward to art class every day – brushes, acrylics, canvases, messiness, freedom! Here is a showcase of some of my favourite high school paintings.

The lion is my absolute favourite painting. I painted him in grade nine. This is the first painting I ever created in an art class. I remember this assignment well; my art teacher hung a beach towel with an image of a lion on the wall and asked us to paint him. He always makes me smile, I love my lion.
