With this piece I was thinking about dreams, not the ones that you have when you sleep but the ones you hold onto. Those magical serene places in your mind you go to when your stressed or overwhelmed. Maybe its somewhere you have been before or maybe its a combination of past experiences to form the perfect spot. Sometimes when I feel like I can’t handle the stress I go there, that special place. It keeps me sane to explore these locations inside my own mind. So I was wondering, if someone were to take a peek into my mind during one of these escapes what would it look like? Would it be as breathtakingly beautiful as it is for me? If I could share even one of these places would others find themselves there too? Ridiculous- perhaps. Crazy- absolutely. Inspired- always.
So the next time you fly away in your mind to somewhere too beautiful to be real I wonder if you will share it… if maybe, just maybe; that is what art truly is.
This is a multimedia piece that I made using with colored pencil (my favorite is prisma color because the high wax base is easy to blend together to get those smooth colors) as well as acrylic ink because its like watercolor only more vibrant and rich. This piece is currently for sale for $575 and if you have any interest in purchasing feel free to reach out to me on any of my social media sights or on this website. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out and thank you for reading- Arie M.
