I hope everyone has enjoyed these works of art. I have a personal connection with each one of these pieces. Aside from visual appeal they offer. I also discovered that after looking further into the meaning behind them, they touch on or represent things that I have grown up around. They represent or convey values and feelings that are deeply ingrained in me. Through my filter and the pieces that I find appealing, I have learned a lot about myself, and I hope to learn more.
