Paintbrush

Berenice Calvario
Class of 2014
Psychology

I saw it like this: Paintbrushes have the ability to change something so simple and empty into an image of limitless outcomes, and its all under our control. Much like in life, we have some control over our choices and sometimes we experience mistakes or accidents while creating our masterpiece. Its how we deal with our mistakes that define who we are. Do I cover my mistakes in shame? Do I work around and deal with them? Or do I embrace them? Art is my life. Friends, family, and relationships are the pains I use to move toward my goals, and admire the imperfect masterpiece of our lives.
