I spent between 3 and 4 hours painting this today. I spent about 2-3 weeks working on this, and I am FINISHED! I am so happy!
This is my 8th Concentration piece, titled Carousel of Time
. My family was getting really tired of the moodiness that was plaguing the rest of my works, so I found the Steampunkism contest and decided to try something different. This piece symbolizes that even as time goes on, I can still be a kid at heart and enjoy life. Thus, there is a more cheerful spirit in this piece, compared to the other pieces in my concentration so far. I don't think the next piece will be as light-hearted.
Here is news of the Steampunkism contest, hosted by
I am just SO happy I finished my painting before November 20! I was really worried that I would not make it. I just hope that there are enough steampunk and impressionist elements in this piece.
