Will Weighs In!
To make the painting, I used two kinds of mud and clay; a darker topsoil from the woods and a bright orange clay from the lawn. For a brush, I found a root and frayed the very tip of it make it produce similar strokes to a real paintbrush. At first I tried to keep the clay dryer, but it clumped easily, so I got it as wet as possible, which worked nicely. The painting itself is a depiction of a group, most likely a family, as they construct a house by bringing the building materials to it. This represents the effort and unity required to produce happiness and industry within the home.
