I had never done a painting before, so when I got an A on this assignment I was very excited. Whether it looks childish or not, I won't be getting rid of it. I like it.
I use five of my favorite books for this project, well just the titles. I used cut paper to make it look like book bindings by layering two pieces together. The title was cut out of the top piece and layered over solid colored paper so the words were easily readable. I stacked and leaned them to give it the look of real books. Lastly, I added a little squirrel to give it some character. I'm not sure why I chose the squirrel, he just seemed like the right fit for this project.
And there you have it, homemade art.
