PORTFOLIOS I-V


 

PORTFOLIO I
Bound in Red Leather

 

"Your Faith In Me"

INSPIRATION:

"Your Faith in Me" was inspired by the belief that people have angels. I know that every person on this planet has a guardian angel beside them every step that they take every single day of their lives. An a angel may be like an ordinary person that follows them around and asks them about their faith in God. Some people are hesitant in believing, while others believe with all of their heart."

"Forever Paris"

INSPIRATION:

"Forever Paris" is about my great aspiration to see the Eiffel Tower. One side of the Eiffel Tower is a hand, holding up a violin representing the musical culture of France. On the other side is a hand holding up a palette; the colors of the palette representing the French flag. This great simble of France is represented in human from with a spine and ribs representing the humanity of French people.

PORTFOLIO II

"Big Hearts Are Never Too Big"

INSPIRATION:

"As I have become involved with people who volunteer their time and their love to troubled children, I realize how much love and warmth is generated between the volunteers and the children.

"Big Hearts Are Never Too Big" reflects the value of love. There can never be too much love in a child's life. The heart of, course, is the traditional symbol of love. I believe the more you give, the more you will have in return for yourself.

Healing Efforts

"Healing Efforts"

INSPIRATION:

"Last year when I was very ill it was difficult for my mind to cooperate with my body in the healing effort.

My mind and body were on different wave lengths and my body was winning. The red represents the fever of 104.9 degrees.

The trumpet is summoning the healing dove. The turtle represents slow movements, which is how slowly my illness moved away from me."

PORTFOLIO III

Soft Velvet Cat by Alexandra Nechita

"Soft Velvet Cat"

INSPIRATION:

"I have a cat that I love; he has eyes bluer than the sky and fur as white as snow. "Soft Velvet Cat" portrays the human attachment, love, and care for animals. The painting also represents my admiration for everyone who devotes their love and time for animals.

The cat is being embraced by a human. You can tell how furry and cuddly the cat is by the thickness in the texture that I've used to portray this effect.

Heart To Love, Wings To Fly by Alexandra Nechita

"Heart To Love,
Wings To Fly"

INSPIRATION:

"Heart to Love, Wings to fly is symbolic of the the change in children's lives as they grow older. The different decisions and different roads they take, which in this painting are meant to be positive. As a parent, you never want your child to leave home, or to grow up, because you love the beauty of their youth. As children grow older, They have the wings to fly, and their parents have the hearts to love. This is the strong bond that is between them."

Can This Be Real by Alexandra Nechita

"Can This Be Real?"

INSPIRATION:

"I am so blessed to have a younger brother named Maximillian. Can this be real? I feel so infinitely happy, so full of life, so complete to have Maximillian. Loving to open up a chest full of race cars and trucks or kicking a ball the way boys do, was something unknown to me."

"Having my pony tail pulled so much was another surprise of having a little brother. Even wild adventures like building pyramids out of live snails was nothing compared to trying to hold our garden spiders hostage, so this way we could watch them spin their web whenever we wished."

City Runner by Alexandra Nechita

"City Runner"

INSPIRATION:

"City Runner is a tribute to all marathon runners and the pride in each city that hosts the race. I love the energy and dedication each runner brings to the race. There are no limits or boundaries when you hear the starting gun and the marathon is on. The the energy of the runners is passed on to each spectator and we each feel their pride, desire and passion.

The goal is not to "win" the marathon but each runner to do his or her personal best.

That's how I believe in life, to always try to do your personal best in whatever you undertake."

Cheerful New Friend by Alexandra Nechita

"Cheerful
New Friend"

INSPIRATION:

"On my first trip to Japan as a participant in the Outstanding Young Person conference, I met an amazing woman who immediately became my new friend. We became so close so quickly it was as if we had known each other for a lifetime. My cheerful new friend was remarkable -- optimistic, wise, humorous and she exploded with energy. She was a volcano of energy who never complained and loved life more than anything. During the week that we were together, I learned so much and will never forget her example and the lessons she taught me about having an optimistic attitude no matter what problems we may face.

Miss Maui by Alexandra Nechita

"Miss Maui "

INSPIRATION:

"On my journey around the world I have seen many beautiful places and met many wonderful people. One specail highlight was Maui. I immediately felt a magnetic attraction to the sights, the smell of the air and the people. On this tiny island, I saw the clearest , cleanest and most penetrating blues, greens, and yellow of the tropics. I loved learning about the traditions of Hawaii. I loved the hospitable people, the dancers, the music and, of course, the food."Miss Maui" is a beautiful woman who symbolizes all of my impressions of Maui. I also miss Maui, its flowers, plants, and people.
