Summer Piece #1

So, this is my first summer piece as an AP art student. I wanted this piece to commemorate my first beach trip of summer 2013, so I wanted it to be whimsical and fun.

I worked the "trash" prompt, using discarded or useless items in creating the piece; the background is a page from the Joe's Crab Shack menu that I had when I went out on my beach trip, and then a layer of acrylic paint. I drew the image of Deborah B. with an old sharpie that I had laying in a junk box, and the collage in the top-right corner is made up of other useless items and some sand (all held together with a semi-gloss gel medium- found out that the stuff is magic!)

I'm not sure of the exact dimensions, but I'm going to guess 9x12". Mixed Media.


  1. Neat take on a very cool prompt. I look forward to keeping up with your work.

  2. Impressive first piece! I really enjoy the composition you've created as well as how you've repeated the overall theme throughout the work in various ways. Adding the small bit of white in the right corner really helps unify the overall design.

    You did a good job at interpreting this prompt and making it your own. I look forward to seeing your other work!

    Good job with providing the media and dimensions as well.
