December was a rough month for me because of personal events, and painting was one of the main ways I got through that. I’m not a professional artist by any means, but I really enjoy making my paintings. Part of what gave me the idea to paint for my portfolio was my AT, Zoe, who had us paint our interpretations of “revolution” during an AT session. I was inspired, so I decided to make some paintings that reminded me of Humes. Some paintings are more related to the course content than others, but they were all a lot of fun to make! I also just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Denham for being so supportive of my art and once during the year giving me an extension on one of my projects so that I could paint. I really appreciate that Humes is a place that fosters art and expression!
