This was the last thing we did. It was all about the Dr.King sayings. We could choose the saying we wanted. Then we had to write the meanings of them. I chose the saying "The time is always right to do what is right". What that means is "It is never too late to do the right thing."

This is the first thing we did this year. Therefore I didn't have that much experience. But the only person who had faith in me was Ms.Fish. I didn't have faith in me. Then she comes and that all changed.

My favorite part of this art work is the colors.I like the colors because when I was coloring it it was very easy. The coloring was easy except shading the white middle part.
