Even though Tom Dobb and Deborah Samson joined the Revolutionary War in very different ways, the cause of the revolution spoke to their individual causes. Samson found kinship with the American Revolution as it mirrored her own rebellious and unconventional attitude. Dobb, a fictional character that certainly characterized many historical heroes, although forced into service, eventually found that the Revolution was fighting for exactly what he wanted to give to his descendants: a good life Deborah Samson’s life would not be considered ideal. Abandoned by her father, and her mother having close to nothing, she was forced into servitude from around ages eight to eighteen. This was not an unusual circumstance in the day, but Samson stands out.
Falk attended a teacher’s college where she studied both painting and drawing at UBC. Not only was Gracie Falk a painter, but she later became a sculptor, installation and performance artist as well. She was inspired by the elements of everyday life such as fruit, shoes, women’s clothing, reading a book, eggs, and many other things (“Underrated Canadian artist: Gathie Falk”). She found the simplicity of life beautiful, and that it should be magnified and not taken for granted. Many of her works tend to hold feminine and masculine elements in a unique, serious, and charming way.
Rather, this further testifies to the subconscious association the woman had made throughout her life between bravery or fearlessness and the color black. In general, I enjoyed the story and thought that it spoke to many true human emotions. Not only did it focus on subconscious understandings of race and color, it also made profound statements regarding perseverance, faith, love, and commitment. Furthermore, it accurately demonstrated the plight of some African Americans, who were (and in some cases still are) distinguished and discriminated against due to their race. It also speaks to the harsh reality of
She inspires me from her bold, bright and profound artworks that are so characteristically distinguishable as being her style that they are hard to be mistaken as someone else’s work, this sense of identity through style is incredibly intriguing as a way of expressing ones individuality. The particular piece that I have selected entitled ‘morning wishes’ I find to be a hauntingly beautiful, dark and nostalgic depiction of childhood memories, growth and acceptance. Unlike many of her other art pieces ‘morning wishes’ is not painted using spray paint but instead with acrylic paints. The rather unusual use of media by Pasquini is a statement in itself. A statement about identity through personal history.
Slicing, splitting and fragmenting her subjects, and using the abstract visual illusions of Op Art. Fashion illustrator, Anna Higgie, mixes contemporary art with vintage influences and enjoys the act of illustrating fashion more than the actual garment itself. Higgie has always been drawn to fashion imagery. “I think that some of the most interesting art in the world right now can be found on catwalks and in the pages of fashion magazines. It’s not recognized by everyone as a serious art form but personally I have always found great inspiration, drama and beauty in the world of fashion” -Bold and uniquely graphic style -work focuses on the portrait, in abstraction and elegance.
In this respect, citizens who have healthy pride attract many people to them because of this charisma and attitude of success. Another effect of positive pride is giving individuals an optimistic view on life. People who have this nourishing pride believe in their every action and trust in their positive power at all times. Even during times when there are insurmountable odds, they trust in themselves. Their ability to come out on top is never doubted and they have already won their battle before it is even started.
Unlike some people, I don’t have very many writing rituals. Over time I have developed a couple though. Figuring out a personal writing process is harder than it seems, but forms after a while. Most people have traditions or rituals for their writing processes. As a young writer, I don’t have too many.
This is what started my life pursuit of getting an education. You see my father was hindered by his social setting, discrimination, and most of all his lack of education. These things were common for a poor black family raised in the rural south of Mississippi and Louisiana. I always knew that through hard work and determination I could obtain a college education. After the recent passing of my father, I had to reevaluate my life.
Throughout every piece of writing, one could easily view Walker's perspective on ideas, her way with words, her stylistic tendencies, her intellectual stance, and her emotional temper. Alice Walker's essays all revolve around the same issue: the issue of African American women being prominent in the American society regardless of their oppression. She always shows how these women never lost hope and always remained optimistic throughout life; in other words, Alice Walker glorifies African American women in most of her writing. For example, "In Search of Our Mother's Gardens," she demonstrates how her mother always was creative with her garden and blooming plants even though she was burdened with work. The admiration everyone held for the garden shows what women were capable of doing at those time—that they never gave up.
To come from nothing, and have everything and some is what most people think happens in life. But for Chanel, it was no option. She had no other way of going about her fame. Luckily, for her, fame fell into her hands, and she took it and ran. In life many people teach to follow the heart and keep reaching for a big dream, and sometimes many people say if the dream is not scary, it is not big enough.
