Kevin Locke

Kevin Locke is a NRL ( National Rugby League) player in the New Zealand  team Warriors.
He is a rookie in Rugby League.  Rookie means he had just started his career as a league player. Locke has the skills to play league just like his teammate Shawn Johnson.

All the Warriors work together to win the game against teams like Cronulla Sutherland Sharks, West Tigers, and the Broncos. Kevin works hard at the back to keep the opposition out in the so they can win. He plays at Fullback.

He can run really fast, past very accurately, and score lots of tries. His skills a unbelieveable, and how fast he can run is unbelievable. I think he is a Legend in rugby League just like Stacey Jones another Warriors Legend. My favourite players from the Warriors is Kevin Locke,  Manu Vatuvei , Shawn Johnson.

You need lots of skills to make it into the Team. That’s exactly what Kevin Locke has. the potential to be  best in the Warriors.

There a 13 players on the field. Kevin Locke is number one because his position is  Fullback. Shawn Johnson plays Half-back.

Simon Mannering is  the captain of the Warriors. He works hard to keep them going. He is good at being captain.

Howard Art Reflection

Art Reflection

Vincent Van Gogh was a famous painter who painted the Night Cafe. He wrote to his brother Theo about it. Van Gogh said himself it was one of the worst paintings he had done out of all his paintings. So Vincent said next that “It was a place that one can ruin oneself and they can commit crimes”,because it was an underground pub where people get drunk and get into bad ways.

The things that I think look  similar between my replica and the original, is the pool table and the Indian man standing next to it. I think the Indian man looks the same because on his body he has a white gown and his head. He is just standing next to the pool table with his hands in his pockets. The pool table looks like the one on the actual painting, because it stands out from all the rest. In the pool table there are three pool balls and the stick nicely set up ready to play.
There are lots of differences in my replica and the original, but I’m only going to share two and that is the Lights on the ceiling and the clock on top of the doorway. I think the lights are different because they don’t really look the same and they not really that big. Some my light that I painted don’t have any connection to the ceiling.
The clock on the doorway does not look anything like the one on the actual painting. It looks like a hole in the wall. I think it does not stand out from the rest, it is the second worst thing in the whole painting.
Vincent Van Gogh was angry trying to get back at himself. He said “ It was an ugly painting”. I think painting is beautiful but Vincent thought it was an ugly painting. The painting is telling some people that not to go out and get in to dumb situations. That is what I think the painting is telling us.

I thought it was a really realistic and it wasn’t ugly.If he said it was ugly he must of been an all time best artist. Thats my Van Gogh Replica
