Sea of Dreams by SummerDreams-Art Sea of Dreams by SummerDreams-Art

Out in the sea, just me and my dreams. What can be more sweeter than to be with all the things I love- the twinkling stars shining so silently and beautifully, the moon shining down and glistening the gentle rippling waves with it's cold lighting.

Where books and knowledge instills the brave feelings in all those who are willing to be guided by its light and power.

When I hear the sea gulls, it tells me that I'm nearing the shores.....the end of my journey. That I'm finally home.....in my sweet abode, in my sweet dreamland.

And there I stand, a solitary dreamer dreaming of the sea as the gentle salty breeze flows through my hair, closing my eyes I bathe in the sweet tranquility which wraps its gentle arms around, taking me to my blissful dreamland.


Just another mediocre piece that my unmotivated self managed to do. Being an artist is no longer an easy hobby for me, and I struggle to stay focused and dedicated on any art that I start...many ideas but no motivation! I guess my days as an artist are numbered as what grows will one day decline too. So to all those who loved my creations, enjoy it while it lasts! ;)

There is nothing much to say about this work other than it was nothing but just struggles and only struggles and till the last moment I had doubts about posting it though hoping that someone somewhere will still love it. :nod:

This is my entry for the Sweet Land Contest held by :iconmagicladycharm: at :iconworld-of-art-kingdom: which was inspired by my favourite song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=27KvNz…

Also this is an early birthday dedication to my dear friends,

Beautiful like all your work. You always come up with the neatest ideas and portray them so beautifully. I too struggle to be motivated. I rarely finish any of my works anymore because I lack the motivation and doubt myself heavily. I too feel my art days are numbered. I am sorry you feel this way. I know it’s not a good feeling at all. I will be sad for the day you stop making art so I hope you keep pushing forward. 💜

Amazing work and very descriptive of how you feel, but do not despair... All moments pass, do not press ... disconnect and enjoy the moment ... and you will have the desire to create (philosophical mode ... the ladder is there ... just enjoy the waves while you walk) :D

First: Thank you so much for this wonderful B-Day gift, it's perfect and very emotional, so deep and relevant!

I don't agree with you, it's far far far away from mediocre, it's wonderful and we can see the love and emotions applied on this work.
Also, I don't know one single artist who never had a lack of motivation or even ideas and inspiration to do art.

In my gallery, my arts are separated by folders, if you look at 2015 folder you'll see only 3 artworks (the sci-fi cover and the paintings studies doesn't count). Was the worst year for me, I mean, almost zero ideas and inspirations. I thought would be "my end" as artist and I had just finished a digital illustration class in 2014, I should be full of ideas and will.

If you look at my other folders you'll see a lot of artworks posted in one year. I can't explain what happened in 2015, but thank God was temporary.
I didn't forced to start again, but I know some things could inspire me, as movies, books and browse other artists works, so I dove into them to get inspiration, to future arts.

Suddenly, in 2016 I started to get inspired and I come back to art again, and now I want to share something that tweeted on my Twitter months ago: "Already told this before, but I'm suffering of this issue again... Countless ideas for new arts come into my mind several times a day, sometimes I feel haunted AND hunted by them. New ideas never leave me alone. I wish there were more of me, and each one could take on an art". Now, this is how I feel and is not forced, I feel "haunted" and "hunted" (in a good way!) by so many ideas and inspiration, I just wish I could have more time.

My guess, this is what happening to you, this is the moment for you to focus on other things but keeping "art in mind and soul", preparing yourself for future arts because new ideas will come. Just don't take the "time passing" thing so seriously, let the time pass and when you less expect, you'll sitting creating art. For now, even if you don't feel this way, come here at DA and keep browsing galleries for hours and hours, this will fill your mind with new possibilities, ideas, colors, scenes, characters.... just, don't run away from it, even if you don't feel inspired to create art right now, you must to keep "breathing" art in other ways, this will keep your mind running. 

All the best.

OMG!Don't say that,is not mediocre at all.It looks fantastic and perfect,and I'm not just saying that,because you're my friend.Believe me,if there were anything wrong with this piece,I would tell you.Don't you ever consider quiting making what you love,you might be tired only and that is the reason of the lack of motivation.Just take some rest of it and maybe in a few weeks you will feel more motivated.I would be very sad seing you go from here or not having arts from you anymore.:love: :hug:

Amber.. something funny about this piece I want to tell you. I've seen this before you even posted it. Call it weird, deja vu or whatever you want but I did!! You know I was staring at this creation for about 10 minutes and then read what you wrote. So crazy to say despite the title I can't help but see it as someone trying to protect the one thing that means the most to them. Wanting to hide in a place where that one thing cannot be taken away. Even before reading a certain part in the description, the thoughts was never it being a dream place, BUT, a facade as a person would use to always smile but scream with silent cries that most people would never hear and look passed.

I for one will say this is not mediocre! I will also say your days as an artist will NEVER be numbered. Whether you believe this or not, as an artist you will always see things differently. You write, you do art maybe others don't know what other types of artistry you are able to do. Artistry comes with the creativity and collaborative of the mind and heart. So unless those cease to exist I will never believe your days as an artist are numbered. Do know that others may not agree with what I say, but.. well you know what I think about that. As always thank you for sharing your art creations and I'm sure someone out there loves it ;)
