concentration one [neutralize]

i think i need to add more to this but i'm not sure how / what to add. but i know it needs something else.
p.s. it's not this glossy. it's just the flash.

concentration two [passion]

i've decided....

so i've decided on a concentration.
i'm gonna do the word/word association one
exploring collage elements and contrast
basically, the project we did in adv. drawing and painting with the little cards, only i'll be using canvases/larger sized paper and the words won't be on the painting. and instead of all of them with a dozen layers, some of my painting will be generally simple

here are the words i'm thinking about doing:
-polarize
-bora
-vibrant
-condescending
-pudgy
-neutralize
-facade
-replenish
-passion
-lucid
-traipse
-lithe
-resentment
-evoke
-perturbed
-tragedy
-emerge
-immerse
-ruminate
-exist
-absurd
-wistful
-atonement

concentration?

i am having the most difficult time deciding on a concentration. i have it narrowed down a lot, but it's still a pretty long list. i think i could tie them all in together in some way, i just haven't figured it out. since i don't really have my own identity as an artist, i want to continue to explore different medias and concepts, so i'm having trouble deciding what to concentrate on.

ideas::
-realist and non-objective pieces that view water. (ice, steam, liquids)
-and exploration of design and texture related to nature (leaf pattern, repetition, that sort of thing)
-figure drawing of people and animals with an emphasis on contrast and color (contour, gesture, portraits)
- (i saw this one on line, i don't know how i'd represent it, but it fits with my struggle with art) the exploration to find ones self and the struggle.
- abstracted views on everyday household objects
- the power of words/word association.

INSPIRATION

Takashi Murakami:: i really like his art done with in lithograph. he's a pop artist in japan, which isn't really my style, but i looooove this. i escpecially love the curly waves and the rustic background.
