Happy birthday, Mr. Ivy!! I miss your art classes! You were such an inspiration to me in high school <3 Hope your birthday is fantastic!
your stuff is really cool!
Wow, I am so in love with your artwork, especially your paintings! :la: I love your bold use of color and contrast, and the compositions on each piece are so eye-catching and interesting! I would fave your entire gallery, but I don't want to spam you, haha! :D

Insta-watch!
Thanks for the watch and fav Mr. Ivy. I can't wait until VASE! I'm so excited. What do you think that piece would get as a score?
I think the piece could get a 4, but remember you are also going to be scored on your writing and your interview too. Are you going to enter a second piece?  They will allow two entries per student.
Yes I'm totally going to make a second piece. I'm just trying to create a bunch to see what work would be better. And I know the interview is crucial as well. It's pretty easy for me :)
