thanks for the dd! i thought i might take the time to explain the idea since some people werent too clear on it. i dont like to explain many of my ideas since i prefer people to interpret it themselves but ill give everyone the general idea of it.
overall i tried to make it a piece which is both light and pretty, yet ominous and ambiguous which, id like to think, is something i do a lot in a number of my pieces.
balloons are something everyone knows to be light, floating objects, yet here the pull and tug on the girl, and the girl pulls and tugs back trying to move forward. certain actions, words, events in your life may seem fleeting, momentary and unimportant but only later do you feel the wrath of their consequences. things you decide on that are so simple have a grave weight on you later on, and you regret it all. you arent able to move forward, may it be because of petty choices or more serious ones, and they cloud your vision. you dont want to let go of the past, you are afraid and you keep thinking about how things could have been different, all the things you wish you could have changed, and so they harm you. you find it hard to see, you find it hard to think and so you find it hard to move on. you need to learn to let go, and move forward in life.
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish but alas.
Regret is state find myself in lot, especially as of late. All the decisions I’ve had to make. All the actions I decided on. All the words I said or didn’t say.
I don’t think I portrayed the feeling as well I wanted to in the original idea… but I hope you get the gist of it Excuse grammar problems coz I suck lol.
I wish I had made the most of the time I had while it still existed. How many times I wish I had said something... done something... but alas it is now too late and I hate myself for how I feel.
Perhaps I should have protested more. Perhaps I should have made more of an effort. But alas here I am wishing to turn back time.
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish but alas I must move on.
