It’s Time For Me To Tell A Story

It’s Time For Me To Tell A Story

Tale as old as time….

Once upon a time I was looking for peace…. lots of peace and so I started pursuing it. It came to me in the form of waves, breeze and NYC lights. For me, it is and it was sunsets melting in the water…

My  painting 💁🏻‍♀️
For me it was Roosevelt Island

I could stare at it’s  marvelous beauty but never get enough of it so I began to paint it in order to bring it home with me…


For me peace became catching waves by the water and coming home to filling my canvas with the beauty I had captured in my heart…

Another place that fills my heart with peace is Captain Tilley Park.

When I saw the post places of peace I thought this is going to be something I will talk about. Following is the link that inspired me :

This was part of the visual section and I think project like these will be easier for me to do. However audio projects maybe challenging to do but I got interested in doing an audio project by watching the project of Isaiah Brooks on the pool of project links that were shared with us by Prof. Ryan.

I think that’s an amazing project. I can apply something like this by taking a video whenever I visit my place of peace that’ll give it both an audio and visual twist. I can speak and record a video at the same time.

  1. Hey! I really enjoyed this post and the fact that you shared the story behind it with us in class. I can relate to wanting to go and just stare at something to relax. I love how you took it to the next level and painted what you saw, and I must say those paintings came out great ! kinda made me want to paint because I also like to places with nice views, although I don’t know about carrying all the supplies. Maybe I will bring out my dslr and take different pictures instead.
