My feet dipping into the water showing the different challenges and daily struggles approaching me in this next phase of my life. The fact that I am even dipping my feet in the water shows the willingness to venture with faith in God, to see what is out there in His plan for me.

The figure walking across the bridge with the umbrella is walking through the rain to reach its destination where there are blossoms on the tree and the sun is shining. It emphasizes all the more how hope is always waiting after all trials. It reminds me of a song phrase, "In that darkness, I can see the light of hope alive in me"
This is a 2 hour drawing of two models. They were so interesting to draw because throughout the whole hour, their mouths were moving in conversation nonstop. They met for the first time that day and it honestly seemed like our class was intruding in on their date. I really like how this shows the woman trying to interact with the man but he's just sitting off the side looking the other direction.
A two hour drawing of a girl on my last day of life drawing. The body is really a beautiful creation. I no longer saw it as anything embarrassing or shameful. We all have one.
I saw these pots in traditional homes in korea when I visited and my grandma used to store fermented soybean in it for our stews in the winter. It symbolizes the way taste can really bring about the cultural roots in our families.
A painting of helen's hand reaching towards the water with it's shadow. I saw how the light was reflective and loved the way the water moved. It also shows the importance of reaching for something no matter what risks might come or even a chance of not finding anything.
In Sorrento, Helen and I would always pass by this alley as we'd walk to the village/market streets. Motorbikes would be the only vehicles to pass through these alleys because they were so narrow. I loved the way the horizon was the mediterranean sea with houses leading up to it.
