This is my Pieces of Me project painting, my painting is a picture of me in hawai’i, oahu, on Laniakea beach when I was eleven standing before the ocean on the beach where there was a few sea turtles laying on the beach, holding my camera about to take a picture I even remember the day itself. The reason I used this for my painting because I thought it was a pretty picture, and one of the ones I liked when I was small. It reminded me of what I was when I was a smaller, half witted, willing to believe anything, always fascinated by a lot of things especially sea life and always wore a newspaper boy hat, I think that was about enough I need to explain about who I was through the portrait, because i'm not going to lie i'm still a little dumb and I still enjoy wearing newspaper boy hats. And being fascinated by certain things, so in a way this painting explains who I am in a few interesting ways.
Not only that but just a lot of elements in this painting define me such as I still like to think of myself as a little kid, I still wear a hat like that every now and then, I like hawai’i, I like turtles, I like turtles in the sea, I like turtles in the sea on the shore of hawai’i, I enjoy ocean views, I enjoy pretty skies cloudy or not, I enjoy rock like areas on the beach, I like wearing trunks, i like taking pictures of things, I like not wearing shoes especially on the beach, I enjoy red T-shirts. And all together I think all of these elements in the painting together make an atmosphere fit for me.
