Explain why you were attracted to this work, and discuss at least two characteristics of this art work that you found interesting or noteworthy.
Incorporate what you have learned about the process and components of art appreciation.
Your post should be at least 200 words in length and based on what you have learned about the process and components of art appreciation.
