I decided I needed to try something new.  I wanted to move away from the use of watercolor and charcoal and transition into acrylic paint.  My idea for this piece was to shift from realistic painting and begin working abstract.  This was a challenge for me because I had been doing the same type of paintings for a couple of years. 

I chose my color palate simply by painting with the colors of my room.  With experimentation, I used various materials such as pool noodles, doilies, string, and dice to leave imprints with the paint. 

Many classmates and peers think I should continue moving in this direction to make my next works.
