Liana B. is today’s featured student artist. Liana’s art, “The Mother of Sorrow,” was selected as a Top Ten Winner in our Fall 2011 national art contest. Liana is a senior at Cypress High School in California. When asked what inspired her piece, Liana told CelebratingArt:
“I grew up enjoying art even though I wasn’t able to attend the art academy like I had wanted. So I ended up teaching myself the techniques and developed my skill. This art piece is made from oil pastel, so the smooth texture to it took a long time since usually oil pastels tend to be harder edge to it.”
Incredible work, Liana! Thank you for sharing your piece and the story behind your art.
