The message I'm trying to send through this picture is: "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again." Or in my case, if you enter a contest to succeed and don't know if you will, over-obsess and create as many tries as you can until your spent. At least, in this way, I can satisfy myself because I know I tried - and in an idealistic way, succeed.
This is my fifth entry.
This is not my ordinary style of painting. I thought I'd try something different. And as such, I'm gonna try to be as straightforward with this essay as I can be. Also not my ordinary style of writing... I'm usually painfully flowery.
So how does this image speak my message? Well you know those Claw machines at the movies or arcade, where you put in X amount of money and get Y amount of tries to nab yourself a goody? Sure you do. And if you're anything like me, you hate them... except the ones with the sensors that let you keep trying until it notices something fall into the cache. Those are just neat. Though I still feel like a sucker who gets pitied for the effort.
Anyway, in an allegory gone horribly wrong; the bears are my victory, the claw represents my chances of winning, and the cache (which you and I can't see) is me succeeding.
Wow this guy is gloomy. So why the heck are the colors so bright? Well even though I doubt I'll succeed, I'm just gonna keep trying. Hope is very bright.
