Day Dreamer/ Dreams Slowly Fading a story unfolding...

I am a stickler for details, so each piece that I create comes with its own set of nuances. I will have an original idea or thought but it changes by the time the actual pieces get completed. Especially when my mood changes daily.
You see... while I'm trying to align myself with God, and dish out caliber work, the ideas just keep coming. The good thing about it is it makes for new art to be manifested but the bad thing is there will never be enough time to create them all. Which is why the "Dream Series" is and may always be an open series. Besides as of right now the Dream series tells my story. 

Day Dreamer 2011 tells the tale of a young woman who has big dreams but has spent a lot of her time with her head in the clouds. So much so that the seasons have change and time is melting away. Yet she remains hopeful that soon she will take flight like birds in the sky and soar.

"Day Dreamer 2012" tells the same but slightly different story. Now while this young lady isn't quite as young anymore, seasons are still changing but the gears in her mind are spinning in circles and although she remains hopeful she knows time is slipping away faster and faster as she gets older.

"Dreams Slowly Fading" is still the same woman but now she is feeling the pressure of what her procrastination and fear have cause. She feels chaos in her life and if she doesn't act soon her dreams will die. She will just fade into the background of her beautiful nightmare stuck forever dreaming.
