There are three types of relief low, meduium, and high relief. for my project i chose to do a medium relief using clay. i chose to use clay because its easy to add texture too and i needed a lot of texture to correctly portray the feathers. To finish my piece i painted it and used a process where i watered down dark paint to add diminsion to the colors of the bird. My favorite part of this piece is the dimision in the wings and if i could change anything about this piece i would go back and give the bird legs which somehow i forgot to do.

Land Art

Land art is a temporary form of art involving things from nature and our natural surroundings. i chose to do the piece i did because i was interested in the concept of taking something from nature and making it look as if it didn't belong there. if i was to do something differently i would do a series of leaves that compliment each other and put them together.

9/25 Art Article. Sculpture period 4.
Reading this selection about a Van Gogh piece that had gone undiscovered raised a question to me as to how much valuable art goes undiscovered due to the worth of an artists name, essentially how many undiscovered artists go throughout life overlooked. As I researched  I read an article that questioned whether artists could continue doing what they loved due to the poverty of leading an art related career. Although some artists due make it big such as Van Gogh and receive an immense amount of money for their work many artists live their entire life being overlooked and letting their pieces gather only for them to enjoy. So this raises the question is the economical plight of being an artist going to overshadow the passion that many artists have for their work. Because of the society we're currently in not many careers are centered around art related subjects and the ones that are don't allow for the creativity artists possess so for the question of will it overshadow i believe it really depends on the person and how passionate they are about their work. As for careers and opportunities in the art world we can only see how things change over time.
