Reach for the Stars by tohdaryl Reach for the Stars by tohdaryl
I guess its every child's dream to become an astronaut and reach for the stars. I know I do. But I found myself being an artist instead and now, I paint my dreams out for everyone to see.

That's clearly the Space Shuttle!  It's a cute picture and boys can be very fascinated by that kind of thing (I was).

You know, depending on perceptions, this painting could have some dark feelings about it. For instance, that rocket may not have people on it... and it might not stay in space...

I feel like this should've gotten first place. There's much better spatial coordination and it's cleanly done.

The only thing that might've kept this from winning was that it was more realistic than the other entries. Other than that this was far better than any of the other ones.

That's just how I feel though. Best of luck in the future!

Haha wow! I can play out the scene in my head of the child playing with his toy rocket, and then looks up into the sky unintentionally and gazes in wonder at the rocket that just launched. The look on his face is pure awe-struck. :D
