Photo Description:
My ideas came from a story book that I used to read when I was little. It was really impressive. The plots, fancy and unrealistic but it explained the scene visually by using simple but imaginative words. I personified a butterfly and coral, even though they are disconnected. In a child's world, objects do not necessarily have to be connected, or make sense. My ideas of these two objects, well coral lives and dies in the same area. It never changes. It will never know how brilliant things are only 100 metres away. It lives in a dark place. Butterflies, however, are brilliant and arrogant. Keeping it's distance from humans. So beautiful. In my painting they have exquisite faces but do not have any face actions.
