    Gabi's Bio:
    I love being considered a “city girl” although St. Paul seems small to me sometimes. I chose to come to Duluth for aesthetic reasons and the sense of community that Scholastica embodies. Being in three clubs, a student senator, full credit load, and two part time jobs, I keep myself very busy. I wouldn't trade it for anything! We need to take advantage of the prime time in our life. These four years go by faster than high school, and I’m just trying to enjoy every moment of it!

Picasso and Pugs

Are you wondering what Picasso and pugs have to do with each other? I would be too. In my intro to art class are penultimate assignment in the class was to be assigned an artist and a painting that they are well known for and recreating it in our own way. I had Pablo Picasso’s “Guernica“. If you didn’t know, “Guernica” is very large and has a LOT going on… so I decided to focus on the horse and the lamp in the painting.

Our final assignment was to do a collage and the only guidelines were that it NOT be boring! No problem for me! Back in Saint Paul I have two pugs. A black female, 10, named Tortilla and a fawn male, 8, named ChoCho who are the lights of my life! Since I miss them so much while being in school, I decided to pay homage to them and have pugs be the focus of my final collage. We had to incorporate a form of media that we had already used in the class with anything we wanted. I painted a canvas with a reddish orange, lavender and a crimson color. There was no guidance for this project, so I just randomly painted. I then looked up pug pop art (which has a lot of results on Google) and printed a BUNCH of those. Last night my friend Mackenzie and I cut them up…which was tedious. They were about the size of a quarter or smaller. I then took a glue stick and glued them to the canvas. It was tedious, but I am very happy. In class tonight we had a little bit of time and I put a glazed top coat type of thing to make it look more finished.

Another exciting thing about art… I got 75/75 on my paper about Picasso, 100/100 on my “Guernica” painting and 59/60 on my Art History Quiz (Part 1). Yay for getting good grades 😛
