The Picnic Party is a painting by Jack Vettriano. Jack Vettriano is a scottish artist. The painting is an oil painting with subdued colors. It depicts a man and two women walking along the beach looking for a place to have a picnic. This is one of my favorite pieces of artwork. I love the colors and the peaceful vibe of the piece. Due to math, artists are able to make paintings appear to be 3D. They are also able to make sure the proportions of the painting are even, and measure the volume of a sculpture. Math comes in handy and is sometimes necessary for artwork to be created.
Good Will Hunting is a movie about a janitor who is a mathematical genius. This movie shows that your background or situation in life does not define your self worth. Whether it is art, science, or math, everyone has their own strengths. Even if a person is better at science than art, it doesn't mean that they cannot enjoy art as well. It is important to explore your interests, and do things you are not necessarily talented at. We all have the ability to do both art and science. R. Buckminster Fuller said, “Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them.” Our education system tells us to only do things we are good at. This limits a persons potential.
