In the Eye of the Beholder

Just last week we were assigned to do large scale portrait of ourselves. This is probably the second portrait of my self in a total of four years, and I was apphensive going in. So i just didnt think of it,; I simply let my hand move (and getting very dirty in the process). This the beginning. the finsihed product is to come

In process

"Abstract IT!" "Okay....How?"

This was assignment we received. Bascially it was "Draw IT...than Abstact IT!". I tried, really I did, but even looking at 30+ examples I still didn't get. All I thought is that it that abstract art involved using line and color, so...  I basicallly took the same theme I was working on and made so the lines and color created the shape and the objects.  And they all came tumbling after.....

Just Flew in From Atlanta and Boy Do I Feel....

....Terrified. That's the word terrified. I was at the NAHS conference and let me say this now, I don't stand a chance. IN LIFE.
Anyway, back on more productive note, This is my pass it art. The assignment was to pass our art to someone else and have them work on it the way they wanted and then we got it back and made it our own. THIS is waht I ended up with. It's not that I don't like it; I just feel detached from it, since it's not all my ideas. I am feeling this with my pieces lately. I feel detached. I don't love my lastest ones as much I did. I think what I need to do is go back to what I love doing, but the problem is how do I improve if I'm stuck in one place?
