I wanted to see what painting from a photograph was like. It can be hard because you start thinking that it has to look like the photo. I actually changed the shadow so that it would be more dramatic in my painting. The colors of the dress, the curtains and the walls are all real though. I wanted to show how I'm constantly see-sawing between doing something insane and staying in the safe, normal world. I took the picture at night so that I could demonstrate how dramatic the darkness could be. All the darkness helped the eye popping colors to stick out as well.
