This design features the Noah Webster Statue, located in Hartford, CT. You can find the statue at Blue Back Square in West Hartford.

I think this design looks like it could be in a sci-fi movie. This is definitely different than anything I ever made. I think… Nature is a beautiful thing. I know I wouldn’t be able to create anything like this without being in Hartford. That Noah Webster statue was striking. Dead center in Blue Back Square. It was just a beautiful moment for me personally. I felt like I was on a cloud. It was such a true moment of happiness. It literally took my breath away. I know in my heart this is my path. I love it so much. It’s amazing… I knew I had to take a picture when I saw the statue. I was thinking about getting the right angle and shot. Just being there… it was just incredible. Looking back on it now, it was a magical moment.

I’m almost at the half way point in making my album. Have to keep pushing myself. I know I said that in the previous post but I think talking about it and typing the words repeatedly will help me. The time is now.

I saw a motivational video of someone walking towards the Eiffel Tower. I randomly stumbled upon the video. When I saw that I thought of myself there again. I feel haunted. I see things all the time related to Paris. It’s always random. Am I just going nuts? I want this life so much. I want to have that moment in Paris. Me… actually standing in front of the Eiffel Tower. Instead of thinking about it every day. The dream and reality become one. The ultimate dream. Crazy… It has to happen. Has too…

One day I will be in Paris. Yes… it will happen.
It is possible. C’est possible à vivre le rêve. I want a tattoo of those words.

The design was very interesting. I wanted to stay far away from purple. Halfway into making the design, I found a really nice red and yellow blend. Something still felt missing. So I played around with that color until I found a nice brownish-red blend. I know it’s dark but I love it. The design gives me a mysterious foreboding vibe. I really like it a lot. I love exploring color.

The music video… I am surprised I didn’t record much footage. Sometimes I lose track of which video setting I’m on. I know I can easily use the taskbar but I don’t like seeing it on my screen. I’ll figure something out. I think the song is a good fit for the design. Free Music Archive is great. I can find many different types of electronic music that I can use for my videos. I started making the music video last night. I wasn’t able to finish because I was really tired. Today has been rough for me at work. The commute back home made me more upset. I wasn’t in the mood to finish this video. However… I have a deadline and I feel happy that I finished it. I’m going to try to make another design at the end of the week. Have to keep moving forward. The time is now.
