I’m really happy with the way that my first digital painting assignment turned out. A lot of this comes down to the fact that our initial assignment was something that I believed in and found really inspiring. Our assignment was to create a painting that paid homage to Native American art and culture, called “Vanishing Voices.”
With that in mind I created a piece that reflected my own experiences and showed a clear hatred of cultural appropriation. This is a combination of a photo from a San Manuel Band pow wow, the San Gorgonio mountains, and various photos of cultural appropriation.
