In my opinion colors have a lot of energy and power. For instance, we feel through looking at certain colors such as blue we are more comfortable, meanwhile, other colors such as reds give us energy. Sometimes we feel pleasant or refreshing after viewing colors of nature. I feel the unlimited power of colors from nature. The colors found in nature are not simple colors. They are complex and constantly charming. Looking at colors makes me realize they have a greater power that exceeds the color itself. For example, I can feel an impression which can’t be explained in simple words when I see a sunset. When I see an early morning sky, I can remember my good memories from my childhood and experience a refreshing feeling. The colors which come from nature, give inspiration to me. - A Midsummer Night's Dream / Hope Garden Numerous times we easily remiss true beauty and wonder despite being together day by day. When we take a step back with interest, only then do these things truly speak to us in many ways. Many live without knowing what passes them by. Time forces them to live day by day without a moment of thought of their own lives, goals, and dreams. Dreams are always lost or left behind. Inner utopia is overshadowed and removed by reality. The separation of ‘Reality’ and ‘Utopia’ is brought to a crossroad through a motif of reality’s ‘Window’. Through peaceful rest by natural wonder, this piece brings a message of hope for these individuals. Nature’s natural colors truly speak to us in many ways. The glow of the sunset…summer’s soft breeze…lovely wildflowers blossoming between the grass. All of these come to together to convey a natural wonder, peaceful rest, and hope of life.
