"This is my second favorite picture. I added the feathers on the top, but they aren't real feathers. They are from a magazine. I cut out red pieces of paper and glued blue paper. I called it "Fire Phoenix" because inside its mouth its red just like a dragon. Dragons blow fire. The Phoenix can go through fire that is why it has mostly red on it. My favorite part about it is that one eye is black with red, and I like all of the gold sparkles too".
"On the top of the picture, I wrote "neighborhood house", because the house on the top was my house that I made. All of the other houses on the bottom are all the houses that I traded for my other ones. I drew the road and the sign and made it "Blakeville". I like my house pictured on the top".
"This picture sort of looks like a star. Close to the bottom where the blue and the red mix together, it sort of looks like blue and red flames. I first used blue, then I put red over it. My favorite part are the blue and red flames".
First I drew it with pencil. Then, I covered over it with paint that makes it shiny and brings it to life. I just decided that I wanted it to have hair, because I like this type of hair. Around the sun, you can see fire lines, and I added lines outside of the fire because I had seen a drawing before of a sun that I liked.
I like how I express movement in this artwork. I was inspired by some of my classmates who like doing acrobat things. If I were to create it again, I would change the white background and I would add more details. How good It came out was what surprise me.
At first, I thought without any color, the hands looked too big. Then, I added color and it looked better. It reminds me of a rainbow. Whenever I think of our Art Teacher, I always think that I should stay in that class for a really long time! I LOVE art!
