Bowl of Hope — Noelle Galicia
Inspiration / About the Art: There were several ideas that I had in mind for creating my piece for the Penny Experiment project, all with a similar theme tying them together: Food and Hope. I sketched a girl looking down a wishing well. A panhandler’s tin can with a single penny in it. A graffiti wall in an inner city neighborhood conveying some meaningful message. A homeless person heartily eating out of a bowl. The final art work ended up being the latter when my boyfriend sat down to eat a bowl of cereal. He had me snap photos of him (he was such a good sport) and then I later developed a drawing from one of the photos. The penny is positioned inside the bowl itself to symbolize hope for the hungry.
Materials: pen and ink, grey marker, watercolor
Size: 6 inches x 8 inches
