I drew this to explain the Language of Loss in Dr. Bory’s unit at the beginning of the spring semester. During the past year, painting and drawing became a large part of my life again, which I pushed aside when I thought I did not have time. When drawing faces, I always start with the eyes because something is always off if the eyes are not right. I have heard before the eyes are like the windows to the soul, and I never paid attention to it before I started drawing. This is supposed to represent grief and loss; however, grief comes in various different forms. The drawing can represent various different emotions depending on who is viewing it. My favorite picture is the second with the mirror. The mirror makes it seem sharper, brighter and adds a different feeling to the picture, which I did not realize until after I took it. This year has been full of pain and grief for many. When discussing the body, there are so many elements I wish to be able to display, but this captures many things we talked about this semester.
