I've read Reverie before buying this one and I feel that her writing skills are getting better each time. ERIN HANSON: BORREGO IN COLOR. Tumbleweed Art Gallery, Borrego Springs, CA. Curated by Glenda Garmon. 2014 JUMP TO: Erin Hanson’s biography, facts, family, personal life, zodiac, videos, net worth, and popularity.

Rating this was truly difficult, because I know that if I read this three years ago, it would have been my lifeline... these days, my perspective has changed for the better, and the darkness was more like reminiscing than feeling. Overall, I still enjoyed the experience greatly, especially the beginning and end, but I think my current psyche limited my connection to her words, despite them being beautiful and honest (in her eyes). This was the first poetry book that I have read since Shell Silverstein, and I absolutely loved it! I first found Erin Hanson online, and was happy to find that she had full books of her poetry. She writes in a very personal way that is easy to connect with. By using imagery and alliteration, Hanson crafts incredible stories and vignettes. However, I and many readers can testify to Erin Hanson's skills because with many of her poems she is able to reach hearts. It's a skill to write well. But it's an even greater skill to touch the hearts of readers. And I believe with poetry, that's what counts. I went to a small private school, where I graduated high school at age 16. For 10 years at this school I had the same art instructor. Aside from valuable lessons in technique and theory, the most important thing I learned was to open my eyes and draw objects as they really were, not draw my assumptions about them. We did a LOT of drawing and painting from nature and still life, and I did hundreds of repetitions of drawing my own face in the mirror or drawing my own hand holding the drawing pencil, drawing itself on the paper (M.C. Escher style). It was all this practice painting realism that allowed me to eventually simplify the complexity of what I was seeing and develop the minimalist approach that I have today. Never Trust a Mirror’by Erin Hanson is a twenty-line poem that is contained within a single stanza of text. The lines use numerous examples of rhyme but do not follow an exact pattern. For example, within the first ten lines, the word “mirror” is used as an exact rhyme, and the words “deep” and “sleep” are used as perfect rhymes.If we read these lines closely, we can understand that Hanson is telling us to appreciate ourselves just like we would appreciate anyone else dear to us. Often, we observe the small things in the people we love. We observe their mannerisms and behavior and fall in love with them repeatedly for the small things they do or say. While reading these lines of the poem, it almost feels like Hanson is urging the readers to love themselves the way we love others. Did you receive any valuable advice from art instructors along the way that still serves you today? When I am out in the field, I use a variety of cameras to capture different angles that might come in handy later when I am painting: I use two Canon EOS 5D cameras, one with a standard lens and one with a telephoto zoom lens. I use my iPhone’s camera when I want to shoot wide-angle shots or panoramas. I sometimes use a drone to get higher-elevation shots or reach difficult angles. I did not have any professional artists in my family, but my parents are both musicians and I learned very early that practice makes perfect. My dad suggested to me that I draw 5 life drawings every day, to develop the skill and confidence I needed to become a painter. I took this advice to heart, and I firmly believe that the best way to learn to paint is to paint every day and perfect your skills by practice and doingness (not just by studying concepts!).

Everyone who’s ever told me that it’s helped them in some way. I know how much words can help people, so if mine have the opportunity to then I’m happy.Erin Hanson was born in 1990s. The 1990s is often remembered as a decade of peace, prosperity and the rise of the Internet (World Wide Web). In 1992 the first text message was sent, DVDs were invented, Sony PlayStation was released and Google was founded. Oh, and the Soviet Union fell and boy bands ruled the music charts. Discover what happened on this day. I started writing silly little poems when I was around 11, but I didn’t take it seriously until I started my blog in 2011. When I paint, I work from photos I took in the field. My challenge is to turn a flat, uninspiring photograph into a beautiful, impressionist painting that captures all the light and movement of the outdoors. The speaker wants to ensure that the reader is reminded of this fact and that mirrors aren’t the only judge of character. They can’t see “how your eyelids flutter” as you’re falling asleep. They show the surface, but there is so much more to “you” that they have no access to. Personification: the speaker personifies the mirror, suggesting that it is intrinsically untrustworthy. One has to assume that it’s going to lie to them, she suggests.
