Just like Portia Munson, we decided that we would create our own collection. Our color was blue and there was many different shades of blue. The collection does tell what time we live in. We like our electronics, video games, jewelry, nail polish, and of course food. It also shows interest. I can't speak for everyone but for me it shows my interest. I enjoy playing video games and painting my nails. My favorite item on the table was the tiara. Sure it's not from our time period really but I like feeling like a princess. Our class collection said many things and told some stories. The fun part will be taking our items back home and see how long others will remain there before they are claimed by their owners.

For this project we are looking at artist who collect things. Whether it be by color, what they like, or just wanting to have it. I feel that it's all collecting. But when this question pops up "is clutter like collecting?" I have a different opinion. I feel that clutter is just random stuff that you don't really care about. It's like that mess in your house or room that tends to pile up, you want to get rid of it but it happens to pile up even more. Collecting is having something that you really love and it means something to you, it's important. I don't feel that clutter is like collecting. Something that I like to collect are porcelain dolls. I love the dresses that they wear and the fact that they are dolls just makes me love them even more. No one is perfect, so why not own something that is?

Between the months of October and November we have been working on two drawings. Both of which are alike but different at the same time. For me the candy jar sketch is more fun but the bicycle sketch was more interesting. I haven't really colored something I drew before, so it is a bit difficult to get all the colors right. Coloring is not as easy as you think. My bike drawing had a lot of things going on, it was important to try and get all the details. This drawing took me a while to complete but it turned out well. It actually looked like a bike. Both drawings had their own aura about them but also resembled each other as well. I can't wait to see what drawings we will do in the future.
For our next sketch we had to draw a jar of candy. This will be a tough thing to draw because the candy has to look like it is inside the jar and not floating on the outside of it. So far I have drawn the basic sketch of it and fixed the lines. Currently I'am coloring the candy on the outside of the jar. I'm really enjoying this sketch so far, who doesn't love draw candy? The only downside to this is that we can't eat the candy.
