is my painting of an Hawaiian beach. I
like how I painted the palm trees. I
hope the water and white waves in my painting look real. In this painting, I tried to make you see the
sand under the waves. I really enjoyed
This is a
painting I did for my art class at Cosumnes River Collegelast spring. For my class, I needed to make my painting
look abstract. Before I started painting
this picture, I drew some shapes. The shapes did not have to be real-life in
size.The violin in this painting looks
real. I really like the wine glass and
the music notes.
This is a
painting I did for my class at Cosumnes River Collegelast spring. For my class, I needed to make a painting
collage and make it look like a dream. Before I started painting this picture, I found
pictures from different magazines and made a collage. Then I painted using the
paper collage as my guide.
I really like
how it looks, and I have it hanging on the wall in my room.I hope you all enjoy it too.
This is a painting that I did last spring for my class at
Cosumnes River College. My homework was
to do a "still life", so before I started paint, I set up everything
nicely on the table. I liked my
arrangement because it looks like I am reading a book by candle-light while
drinking coffee.I had a light shine on
the arrangement from the left, and then I added the shadows on the table, cup,
book and bowl.When you look at the real
painting, the apple looks like a real apple.I am very happy that I was able to paint it that way.
I did the best I could to create this picture.I hope you enjoy it.
I started to home-school in 1997.
Before homeschooling, I went to public schools, and I tried to learn in different
kinds of classrooms. Sometimes I was in hearing classrooms with an
interpreter. My interpreters were always nice.Sometimes I was in special Deaf classrooms
where everyone signed.The public schools
were fine, but I was not learning and growing. So we decided to home-school. I did well
in homeschooling, and I graduated in June 2006.
There are many
things I liked about homeschooling. In home-school I had one-on-one
teaching and help.This worked for
me.My favorite subjects were Practical
English, Biology, and Computer. I really liked Practical English. Some of the fun things I liked in homeschooling
were P.E. and Art. I liked to play soccer and baseball. When I
could still walk and run, I loved to go outside and run and kick the soccer
ball.When I had to use a wheelchair, I
would do P.E. exercises in my house. I also really liked to do Art.
This was my most favorite subject in school.I would go outside and draw things I saw in nature.I still love to do that.For one of my home-school art projects, I
drew an eagle and a flag. I entered my drawing in the Sacramento County Fair.My drawing won First Place and Best in Show
ribbons. When I saw my picture on display, I was so happy, and I felt all
the hard work that I did was worth it.
The subjects that I
didn’t like in home-school were Math and Economics. I did not like these
subjects because it is hard for me to understand math problems. But I tried to
do the best I could in math, and economics.
Homeschooling was good for me, and I am glad my Mom
was my teacher. I did well in homeschooling, and I had fun.It was nice to have my sister home-school
with me, and to have all my other homeschooling friends.I was busy with home-school field trips, church youth groups, Boy Scouts, Challenger
sports, Co-op classes, and many other activities.I was never bored.
graduated from home-school high school I attended Cosumnes River College. I took lot of computer classes, and I earned
my Certificate in Web Design. I also took
some art classes at CRC, and last year I took painting class. I enjoyed my
painting class.Art is still my most
favorite subject, and I still like to draw and paint God's beautiful nature.
I prayed and asked God to help me in my
homeschooling and in college. I think
God gave me a love for Art and the ability to do it.My hands do not work normally, but I can
still draw and create.I believe God is
helping me to do this and to create art.I believe with God's help, I can do anything.
