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.
