Art art art art art

This is a portrait I painted of myself after a long, depressing, weird day at school. mind you, I don't smoke any more. Promise.


Recently two of my classes have been coinciding, since I am studying 20th century european art history, and my Research Studio class is going over modernism. Today a painting came up in Research that we learned about in 20th C Euro, which was Malevich's Suprematist composition of an aeroplane flying. I am not so fond of abstract art, but I quite like this composition because despite the title, it actually looks like an old lady carrying grocery bags. Am I wrong? Take a look. More later, have to get back to class.
