Forgotten Art Project

I found one of my old sculpture projects from last semester. It was in our pathetic spare room: 

Would you look at that mess. 
It doesn't look like this anymore. I tidied it up a bit. Finally. I've been telling myself to organize that room all summer and now that there are only two days left before school starts, I finally feel motivated. It really wasn't that hard once I discovered that half the junk in there was trash. There's still more to be done though. 

So anyway, this project. 
It's based off of this painting by Van Gogh. 
I chose a simple painting because I figured that I could put more thought into the subtle details. That, and it was the last project of the semester and I was so over that class. 
Still, I do like the way it came out. 

"Wheat Field With Crows" 
Old suitcase, cardboard, hay, hot glue, spray glue, air dry clay, rice, brown sugar, styrofoam, yarn, fishing wire, acrylic paint.

  1. I so relate to the spare bedroom mess. The busier we get the more hobo piles we have around our house.

    That project is beautiful!
