Symphony of a Dream by DianaACastle Symphony of a Dream by DianaACastle
I ..don't even know what to say about my entry.

It represents my dreams in the harshest of ways, but not even in the way that I had planned. I planned to show my dreams of creating things and bringing them alive with color through my art, and instead I got the experience of hardship the most. This picture was lost as a corrupt file three times. One of the times it was 80% done. It also contributed to me cutting my toe. Now as 90% done, my computer has gone wack and said there is no disk space to do anything, to edit, save, or anything. This is all I could take with me from that very, very challenging experience and I tried to make the best of it, so I hope it doesn't look too bad for all the stress it put me through.

I've heard more than one comment on how I was crazy for continuing this and not just giving up. I guess this was the final way for me to realize that, if anything, one thing I DON'T lack is the motivation and will to pursue Art.

And I guess all artist are a little crazy.

I'll do a more in depth commentary on the symbols and meaning when my toe stops bleeding and I stop spazzing angrily every time I see it because I know how much better it could have come out- so check back in a week or two if you're interested.

EDIT: Did some changes like removing the arch and adding the birds over her head

I think the birds make it look a bit more balanced, and it still looks really great! =D I haven't talked to you in a while, hope you're doing okay!

I miss talking to you D"8 But I'm glad you think it looks more balanced now! I was worried the composition was too plain and my teacher suggested adding the birds.
