    February Snow

    I chose several poems, but I didn't really have a mental image for some of my original selections. This haiku is the one that actually spoke to me the most because I could imagine doing exactly what the poem describes. Initially, I was a little stumped as to what to do, but it started getting colder in Syracuse and I took inspiration from what I saw around me.

    Even though we didn't really get to communicate with the poets on a one-on-one basis, I thought the process went really smoothly. I'm actually using this piece in my portfolio because it's one of the more well-designed pieces I've done. I really liked doing the sketches repeatedly and reworking my idea because I was able to see my progress from start to finish.
