Calendar Art

This year for calendar art we had options to pick from. There were a variety of stunning pieces of art. But this one caught my eye. The textured landscape. I liked this piece because it really caught my attention. Something that challenged me along the way was probably picking the right patterns. Something that I really thought was cool was the idea of the art. I am really happy that I picked this design because I am happy with the way it turned out. I hope you liked it.

Mikeara can be a sporty sensation but he can also be a crazy clown. My cousin is the average kind. He will come and see you and give you a big hug even if you refuse. His personality can cheer you up when you are in a bad mood and he also tells you really bad jokes, but you still laugh at them anyway.

The first thing that you would probably see when you meet Mikaera are his twinkling, glinting eyes. He has a very gentle tan that shines in the light. He has chocolate hair swayed to the side, styled with gel. His ears are a curved oval with a squarer appearance. His nose is a slight tilt but I think it suits him. He has a full set of teeth that you can see twinkle from a mile away.

He is not the best at taking photos because his eyes are always squinched together. My cousin isn't from around here and he only comes to visit. He plays lots of sports and loves to mess around. So he is kind of a goofball. 

As you can probably visualise, my cousin has many different personalities. He is one of the best cousins you can have! But from my writing above, can you guess in the photo who I am talking about?
Leave in the comments who you think he is....

I liked this post because it was really fun and I loved to write it.
Something I learnt while writing was probably writing about someone else and describing their character.
