Flowers in a Vase


Special Artistic Merit

As an assignment in school we looked at a picture by Vincent van Gogh and the art teacher told us to draw a picture out of chalk and then paint it. I chose to do a vase of flowers because I like the one Mr van Gogh did. Mine isn’t as good as his but I like it. I like my colors alot and I think the chalk and the paint look really cool together. I am 8 years old and in 4th grade. I have von Willebrand’s, F.A.S. and was born addicted to heroin. I am being raised by my grandparents. It is hard to be different and I like that I can express my feelings through art. Kids are sometimes mean and it makes me feel good to draw. I like to draw and make art.
