This piece stood out to me because it wasn't just one piece of artwork but a collection of tapestries. It wouldn't have been the same to see it on a website because in person I could actually see the individual stitches and textures of each tapestry. Also, the colors look different online than how I saw them in person. The colors look more "dry" in a way in this picture which I don't really like as much. I think this is the case with a lot of art pieces, and I strongly suggest to go see art in person if possible.
I really enjoyed the design of this room the most. I liked the how the sculptures were on the floor rather than on pedestals like more sculptures. It made the entire room feel like it was part of an art piece. The windows in the back were a very nice source of light for the room and showed the beautiful garden in the background. The entire room was fairly minimalistic, since it did not use pedestals which put a larger focus on the actual art pieces in the middle of the room.

This was the work that I thought best expressed my core values. Family is extremely important to me, and I think that people should try their best to set aside part of their day to spend time with loved ones. This piece shows a mother and daughter bonding over applying make up, and it makes me think of times my dad taught me how to do different things, like how to shave for the first time. People often take things in life for granted, and one of those things is family. A core value of mine is to never take your family for granted and try to appreciate them as much as possible.

This piece was the best representation of the Good Life to me. Everyone in the picture seems so relaxed and at ease. Comfort in life is very important. Comfort does not lead to the Good Life, but comes with achieving the Good Life. It would be nice to enjoy myself one evening by the ocean or the river without any responsibilities to worry and stress about.
