This definitely reminds me of an old adventure story.
"A young demon sets off from the underworld, desiring to be an angel. Packing her bags, she heads out to the mortal world. Little does she know what decisions she will need to make in order to put her foot on thew right path, and how hard doing the right thing is."
The colors of this are amazing, I love the choices you made here. It is very eye catching this painting. You obviously spent more time on this than some of the other deviations in your gallery, and that is shown here immensely in talent. The details to the door, sky and grass, really emphasizes importance of the door, whatever the viewer's interpretation is. I truly believe this emphasizes choices in our life, whatever they may be. You really did a good job here, especially with the darker colors you used for the person. It shows that she/he/it is not the main focus here, but rather what the door symbolizes. Bravo, lriis!!!!!!

I just have to start off and say how much I love your artwork. I enjoy getting a devious notice in my mail from you. It's always so exciting to see what you will come up with. And as always I take great enjoyment in analyzing your work. I took a few days to really think through this piece. I wanted to be able to analyze it all. So what I'm writing below is only my own thoughts. The drawing may not actually symbolize these things, but this is what I see. I hope you enjoy!

The first thing to note is the angle at which this picture was drawn. Worm's eye view is a great way to make a drawing look daunting and some what terrifying. The door in front of the young girl seems to symbolize a life ahead. The door is large and makes the girl look small and somewhat afraid. It seems to reach to the heavens which swirl about. Another thing to note is that it's shut. She has to muster the courage to reach up and open this daunting door before she can continue with her life.

To the right of the drawing is just open air and a little bit of brush peaking through the corner of the page. This open space symbolizes the long life she will have to meet once she walks through the door. I also find it interesting that there isn't much ground showing. The sky fills this picture. It's as if she will have to soar and reach her goals. Unlike people who trudge through the brush of life. In some ways though the sky is more daunting than the ground. She must soar instead of walk. This is much harder to do. She must reach her dreams which are far above her head. And the fear of falling back down to the earth must be terrifying.

One thing I noticed right away are the wings sprouting from the girl's back. At first this piece of the drawing really confused me. Why would she have wings? What could this mean? But I believe I have found the answer. Her wings are very small and I had mentioned she has to soar to reach her dreams. This would be very difficult with such small wings. She will have to lift her body and her small amount of belongings with her. The struggle ahead of her will be extremely difficult. The sky is clear meaning her struggles from the outside world may be small; however, her struggles with in her are large since she must fight with her own self to reach her goals.

Now one thing which still puzzles me is where is she on her journey. Is this the beginning of the end? Or the beginning? How long as she been traveling? Did she just start or has she been at this for a long time. Something to really think about. Part of me thinks she's been traveling for a while by the way her clothes look. But then again the luggage sitting next to her seems newly packed like she hasn't even lifted it once. When you've been traveling for a while you may be more likely to carry it and not drag it behind you.

The last thing I want to mention is the darkness which is above her. The sky is clear for the first stretch of the journey but then their is a black spot which is unknown territory. What will be up there? Will she weather many hardships or is it clear? The unknown lies in front of her. This small spot of black casts the whole drawing in mystery, for not only the viewer but also the young girl.

Well, that's it. Sorry it took so long to say. I kept finding new things to think about. I rated this drawing really high because of all of the extreme artistic ideas I found in it. I think it deserves those stars. Thanks again for letting me write to you. I hope I made some sense.

I don't know if I'd want to open that door - it probably leads up to that planet.
