Important influence: My family and friends
Grateful for: The life and the people God has given me.

When I was told that an oil painting class was going to be made, I got really excited because I had never really worked with oil paints before.  I also wanted to be in the class because I was told that my painting would help a person in need. Living in Santa Ana we see homeless people, but we never really know what to do. Painting their portraits is one way, we, Santa Ana High School students can express ourselves and at the same time help another person. While painting, we were able to bring out the hidden colors in someone who is unseen under the greyness of homelessness. I chose the color purple because purple creates calm and relaxing vibes which reflects to Darrell's attitude. I also chose the color yellow because it really complements the purple as well as adding a brightness to the painting.
