This painting was created over the course of a week, and took several hours to complete (approximate ten). The primary inspiration behind this piece was Salvador Dali’s work, and I attempted to use aspects of his painting to create a surrealist piece. In the piece, an easel is visible, holding a head with blank eyes and a birdcage for a head. A snail and gulls are present, along with an octopus slightly obscured in the corner. There is a beach, and a key in the ocean behind it. This key symbolizes imagination, which can unlock endless possibilities through the mind. Acrylics and canvas were used to construct this piece.
