I showed movement by looking at the top flower, and the dark colors, and then your eye follows it by looking at the flowers from top to the bottom.

Halloween is coming near so I decided to make a pot that could represent a jack o lantern. In order to do that I made my pot very round with very small lip and small, round foot with a fat belly. These adjustments made my pot look more like a pumpkin and made it look better in total.

I made an air balloon flying in the sky. I had a big picture of the sun rise with the hot air balloon flying over it. I put lots of colors on this art piece . These related to the piece because of the sunrise. I made this because I like balloons. This expresses me because I have been on a plane once and it was really fun. I think it came out well but I could have done better.
