Second Half

AnaMaria Perez

Plans for Finishing

“I will be completing the piece with charcoal constructing a silhouette of some New Mexico cacti and yucca and the Sandias in the background.”

Plans for Finishing

“On the other half of the piece, I will have a similar scene to the original of a river and a rocky landscape. The animal in the center will be a roadrunner in a semi-cartoonish style, with smaller birds surrounding it.”

Plans for Finishing

“For the other half of the Forbidden City piece, I wanted to show a building that had historical significance to the US. I chose to use Independence hall as the building that will represent the American half. I plan to make it more of a night scene to contrast with the snowy scene in the other half.”

Plans for Finishing

“I completed my piece with Georgia O’Keeffe as the other side of the face with my representation of her style of western mountains and skies in the background.”

Plans for Finishing

“I want to depict aspects of New Mexico that are not just an icons of the state. I plan to draw a Jarabe Dancer on Route 66 with American plants and Native American textiles.”

Plans for Finishing

“For the other half of the piece, I want to draw an animal that is representative of the US, like the lion is for China. But just like the dragon is very standard, I felt that an eagle would also be too standard, so I drew a turkey instead.”
