Tropical Vacation

Hello Blogosphere!!

Guess what?! In less then 8 days, (March 8 2015) I’ll be on a 31 hour plane to Australia for a 2 week cruise! I’m SO SUPER-DUPER excited. But sadly I’ll be missing 2 weeks of school which means I won’t be blogging for a while :(. But don’t worry! I’ll be sure to take a lot of pictures and post them so you can see what it’s like. I’m mostly excited to go on this cruise because I’ll get to see my Dad, he works on the ship as 1st assistant captain I think . I went last year (in 2014) to Alaska and it was SO fun. I went with my Mom, my brother and my mom’s friend. On the first day we went Kayaking in the ocean, my brother and I were so afraid that a whale was going to come and knock our boats over, none did, but as soon as we got back, my mom found an article about people kayaking and a boat flipped by a whale! On the second day, we went Zip Lining, I was terrified. Last we went gold panning! It was cool! I honestly have no idea what were doing this year but I’m excited!

3) Fiji is often called the Republican of Fiji
4) The capital and largest city in Fiji is Suva Continue reading

Danica Online Tough Customers

At my school, we are doing this really cool project about art. Our teacher gave us a book with tons of really nice painting by really awesome painters. I liked a lot of the painting but, I`m not doing extra work, so, I had to choose one of them. I chose this painting you see below, called ‘Tough Customers’. This amazing painting is by John George Brown. I wanted to used this painting for my project because I thought it is a very unique piece of art, nothing like I’ve ever seen before (to be honest, I don’t spend most of my time looking at art, but I have seen quit a few pieces). I really like the way the colours contrast together really well. I think this painting has a very vintage feel to it and makes it look really important and special.

I think this is the kind of picture you have to look at really well for a while. This picture looks like it would take place at sunset because the kids faces are glowing (In the picture in the book we had to see the paintings, it was a lot darker so you couldn’t see the darker half of the fencing area).  The colours are very warm which makes everything stand out a lot better. In this painting, there are four children one girl and three boys and the boys are staring at the girl. Continue reading
