Title: Nature, Crafts
My final piece did not look anything like my original. Focusing on my "love and dreams" theme for this semester in art, I started with two hands grasping each other made out of sticks (still shown), two people in the middle looking at each other, and lips made out of Hershey's kisses wrappers. I painted over everything but the hands, glued tissue paper leaves begind the hands, then decided to continue with the earthy feel for this piece. I added rocks and paper mache pulp for other textures to branch out and off from the sides, creating an even more abstract piece.
