About the Artwork
I don’t like to explain too much about the meaning of a painting and there is a lot to guess with the title of this one. I wanted to create a story about how it’s important to have dreams but too much expectations can be vicious and dangerous. Especially love expectations. They can burn your wings. Icarus should have been satisfied with the present moment instead of always wanting more.
