"This world is but a canvas for our imagination"
The challenge is to create a picture to illustrate the quote or, if you like, any affirmative quote regarding art.
I did use that quote and wanted to portray my imagination which can be quite weird. I also want to have an artsy feel to the image and include some form of actual art. I finished it with a canvas texture.
Background - I combined two images to make the BG - http://illegal-designs.deviantart.com/art/Stock29-Premade-Background-1-139198966 and http://illegal-designs.deviantart.com/art/Stock30-Premade-Background-2-256778048
Window frame, ballerina, sparkle, row boat, rope, starfish and seaweed - purchased from Mischiefcircus - http://mischiefcircus.com
Mermaids in the window frame - Evelyn De Morgan “The Sea Maidens” - http://www.artmagick.com/pictures/picture.aspx?id=6751&name=the-sea-maidens
Paint/water drip - I made this
Textures, seagull - my collection
There is just something so strange about this image but I do love it!!!
