“The Endless Beauty” by Emma Rochleau, Grade 7

Emma’s inspiration- “I named my artwork ‘The Endless Beauty’ because when I go to the Arboretum, I walk along the paths and I see an endless variety of flowers, plants, and trees of all shapes and sizes. The paths seem endless. While you’re strolling through, it’s a beautiful sight.”
