a song lyric is painted on my chest "I'm the kid who always looked out the window. failing tests in geography. But I've seen things far beyond just the schoolyard." I've been saving my favorite doodles since elementary. School is really a struggle for someone with such a strong will. I would have jumped out the window if it weren't for art class. I wish I could go back in time and protect the little 2nd grade Christa when I was so naive. I dedicate this piece to my ADD brother and to my Deviant art cousin Liemryn who doesn't get out of school for 7 years. Sorry Lily- it's not all that fun out of school either. It says 20,000 hours on the desk because that's how much time I spent in the classroom by graduation. O ya It's liquitex acrylic gell medium gluing on paper doodles. oil paint on top. canvas. probably 40" high

This is the piece I enjoyed doing. I was taking DESIGN II and my instructor told the class to create a collage of what we think about Columbus, Ohio. I came up with the idea that there is a good and a bad side to Columbus and I'm sure it applies to all the major cities around the world. So the left side is the good and the right side is the bad. I was very happy how it turn out and my instructor was very impressed, he gave me an A-. This was done on February 3, 1994.
