connection can be made instantly. In the books The Awakening by Kate Chopin and The Color Purple by Alice Walker, there are many cases of symbolism and metaphors. You never know what you’ll find, from the authors personal connections or the animals the wander the books pages. I will be discovering the symbolism and metaphors in both books.

From a few feet away, I heard my mom ask, “Are you sure this is what you want to do?” and I replied, “Of course, this is who I am”. Everything about hair color amazes me-- the way it looks when you hit the sun light, and what it looks under fluorescent lights, and how hair manages to change so drastically with just a mix of chemicals.

I would give the finished product an eight out of ten, because I find it to be a bit busy. I like the color scheme, but the feel of the whole painting is louder than I wanted it to be.
