Finished Art Struggle Project

I have had a lot of time to work on my struggle project. It has been a struggle for me to do this because what I wanted to do is something that I know I didn't have enough time! I planned on sculpting some ribs and adding the extra 2 that I have, but I wasn't able to! I then decided to do a painting of ribs! I had a few different ideas of how to paint the ribs! I tried a few different things and everything I tried did not turn out the way I wanted them too! Since we have a new assignment I decide I would do my best even better because I did not finish it the way I would have liked too! I tried my best and I hope with what I have done! 

Struggle Art Process

I had way to much trouble on our first assignment in art! It was about struggle. When I thought of struggle, my physical rib pain was my first thought! I decided to do something that involved ribs! I had an idea to sculpt ribs but then I give it a lot I thought and I knew that I wouldn't be able to do that! My second choice was to do a drawing of ribs and paint it but have the paint drip down the picture like it was sad! I tried doing that and it did not work the way I wanted to I decided to just paint it! I am gonna hand in hat I've got because I have spent most of my time doing different ideas an none of them turned out the way I wanted!
