Breakdown by TriciaFitz Breakdown by TriciaFitz
So I call this "Breakdown" because recently I had an intense emotional breakdown and this is as best as I can show how it was like. There's a lot to say about it, and there are many "symbolic" aspects to it. Like the river, the bird, even the colours. I wanted to make the colours seem like a "fantasy" style, and I find this works pretty well. It all represents a time where I was stuck between fantasy and reality, freedom and imprisonment...and it was a lot to handle. But I'm ok now.

It was all made with some photography I had here on my computer and I used the magic wand tool on Photoshop to make selections (Toleration 30). I think there were about 7 or 8 layers in total, the River layer being at the top. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

I often have that feeling, though it makes me frustrated more than breakdown...fantasy will always win over reality though. Thank god art is here to realease the stress!

Also love the colours!
