Why I like The Flower Of Life

I enjoy this painting because the flower looks strong, yet very delicate and beautiful at the same time. I also love the warm red/orange colors Frida Kahlo included in this painting. When I look at the flower, my eye immediately goes to the center of the flower. The middle of the flower looks like a firework, and I really like fireworks. The flower could also look like a person, if you interpret it that way. That's another reason why I like this painting. Frida really lets your imagination really go wild when you examine the painting.

Why I like African Beach

There’s just something about this painting that brings a sense of relaxation over me. I really like how the artist used very muted colors to bring that calming sense. I also love this painting because it brings back a bunch of memories from my past vacations to the beach. I really enjoy how everything in the painting is not perfect and precise, because at the beach the sand isn’t perfectly flat. I also like how the artist put a few people in a boat it catches your eye.

Why I like this painting

I mainly like this painting because it ties my religion into it. I also like it because I feel emotionally attatched to it. When I look at this painting it seems very mysterious and I cant help not to feel curious. The dark colors make the painting very ominous and serious. I also like it because St. Francis brings back memories of me going to St. Francis University for volleyball camp.
