Last week I explained the current Brooke Shaden 15 Day Content Creation Challenge and shared five new pieces created for it, this week another five images. I must confess to feeling a little burnt out this week, it has been a busy few months, and to be honest possibly not the greatest time to jump in on a challenge like this, however, I find I get so much out of them. This week I am discovering a slight case of procrastination and lack of imagination; so instead of creating a whole new idea, I have been taking inspiration from other artists and older images of my own.
Day 6 – Beauty, challenge show your idea of beauty
The message I was trying to emphasize was that I felt beauty was pain and vain. High Heels are like daggers, and jewelry costs too much, I also used the skull to convey that beauty is only skin deep.
Day 7 – Time, Use a painting as inspiration
Time flies, Time is money, Tim is key, Time is fleeting, all used in the rather symbolic piece inspired by Salvador Dali, even the Raven is a symbol of good omens and knowledge (to some cultures).
Day 8 – Potential, using open space
Eggs that hatch and have the potential to turn into something else; a bird, a lizard, and snake a turtle. Can humans change too? A new life with new potential, to be more than what we started with.
Day 9 – Curiosity, explore a new location
It is a big wide world with lots to explore. Who is this mystery woman walking through an open glade with the woods and new moon rising behind her? So much to explore, morning, noon and night.
I also could not help myself and did this little bit of whimsy!
Day 10 – Being Alive, use a rope or string
“Don’t be pushed by your problems, be led by your dreams” Ralph Waldo Emerson
The key to happiness is not letting the sands of time slip through your fingers. Unlock your potential and grasp your true happiness.
So that is where I will leave this for now, another five images next week. Which do you like most, and why?
