I chose this image because the colors really caught my attention. I like how the random shapes of color make the shape of the heart. This image seems very simple but is very complex. What i like the most about the image is that there is more to the image then what you see when you first look at it and each individual can interpret the painting how they want.

  I chose this piece of art because I liked how it was very much like pop art but also very modern. I also really enjoyed the colors and like how the background is a bright color and the stuff in the middle is black and white. 

Examples of Hands Free Art


I chose this because I like the colors. I like that you can see a reflection even though there is nothing there. I say this because it also looks like a landscape but it is made out of mixed medium.

This is a painting completed in 2013 by Tom McKinley entitled "Crow in Samona". It is a contemporary painting completed using oil on panel. I chose this painting because I thought it was very interesting how it had a video-game like quality to it because it is very graphic and clean. I also like his use of light whether it be the pink sunset under the dark blue sky or the pops of light coming from the grass and the house. This painting makes me feel a sense of peace and quiet and looks like a wonderful place to be.
