This was my final project for my painting class. I wanted to create a 3-D painting depicting different spaces I've slept in. Someone very thoughtful in my class suggested I experiment with the idea of making my piece in the shape of a cube, and I'm so glad I did! I glued several painted canvases and boards together to create four "walls." Each wall is like a glimpse into a different room or space.
