The selection of items in this painting is a reflection of myself. The bag is my “body” encompassing a tube of paint and brushes to show my love for art. The lavender candle shows that I might appear cold until there is a spark to ignite my flame. The colors chosen were mainly yellow which is my favorite color, complemented by the blue of the background and purple of the candle for the aesthetic appeal. The random arrangement of the items spilling out of the bag signifies my spontaneousness and carelessness.
