Radio Lab Blog

I am really amazed that Mantis shrimp can see the most colors of any animal on earth. I also never considered light to be a physical object before  I knew it could be manipulated (obviously) but I never considered it as something in the physical space, I felt it was more ethereal but I didn't give it serious thought till now. I really liked the opera music that they used in the background of the podcast, it made it funny and entertaining when they would repeat everything they said in chorus.

Self Portraits I like/Dont like

I like this self portrait by Frida Khalo because she expresses herself and the pain that she was feeling very well in her art. She was pretty new at painting as well which makes this even more spectacular.

I dont like this portrait by picasso because its relatively simple and doesnt show much detail of his facial features in it. To me it looks almost as if a child had painted it and not someone as famous and talented as picasso.

Art Gallery

The art in the gallery that I liked the most was the one what showed the people eating together, I liked all the colors that were used in the painting and it was really well done. I realize now that I should've taken a picture of it or something so that I could show it on this blog.

Response to Video

I agree with the video, the work I'm doing right now isn't the quality that I would like it to be much better at certain things and I don't feel that my current quality of work is up to my own standards. I usually have a clear image of what I want to make but rarely if ever does it come out the way I want it to. This applies to my artwork and many other things in my life. I find it hard sometimes to continue trying if something doesn't come out the way I had it planned even though I know it is the only way to get better.

My previous experiences in art

My previous experiences in art are in high school, I didnt use any programs like photoshop. The art that I did was more traditional in the sense that no editing took place on a computer. Im really interested in learning though. Ive seeb what you can do with the program from watching videos on youtube and sites like deviant art.
