However, he saw a word he didn 't know he got really frustrated. He felt very confused and felt that he was inferior to the other kids for not knowing a few words. His school work was like every other normal kid, about average. When it came to school work that required reasoning, he became utterly confused on the given assignment and decides to give up on it. This shows that Sean wants to be as smart as possible but he decides to block himself from trying to learn things that he can’t comprehend which is a bit understandable considering that this is occurring at such a young age. This behavior of his occurs again when Sean reaches his adolescence.

He was becoming even more aware of this behavior and his parents (Judy and Ron) were afraid he wouldn’t be able to do things like normal kids(drive a car, playing a musical instrument, sports,
The central 18th century Russian ruler, Catherine II, also known as Catherine the Great, has retained a place in the pages of history as one of the brightest and most influential women of not only her time, but of more recent history altogether.

Even the woman’s frame and posture seem to follow the lines created by the railings of the viewing box. The railings are also implied lines, the first thing our eyes go to is the woman, and then we follow the railings to the man who has his gaze set on the woman. The man’s gaze gives us implied lines that lead us back to the main focus of the painting, the woman. The artist also uses light and dark to guide our eyes to the important parts of the artwork. Most of the artwork is dark, while the woman and the man looking at her are in the light. This makes us instantly look at them. The wide space between the man and woman has no major distractions within in, the artist could have filled that space with some interesting art, but chose not to because it would have drawn the viewers’ attention away from the woman and man. The authors choice of color is quite plain, but the bright colors that follow the sides of the viewing box help guide the viewers eyes to the man in the background, assisting the implied created by the railings. The author used value in the artwork to show what is important. The woman’s body is heavily shaded and doesn’t catch the viewer’s eye.

Thank you for sharing the next installment of your novel with me. The scene of Isabella’s first sexual encounter with Senor Ramon was well done and captured the wide range of emotions that Isabella feels throughout the scene. The anticipation was drawn out well and the attention to detail from Isabella’s makeup to the room to the articles of clothing of both of them were in was placed nicely as the rest of the chapter read with a controlled sense of suspension leading up to the act.
