I'm very found of the idea and artistic approach to challenges artists face on daily basis. Not verbal, not vocal, but visual and without written word you convey a very strong message most of us can stand behind. And that's what a true artist does. Kudos to you, dear Cindy.

This is amazing and understanding
The Validation is about to secure perfection, and Creativity is about the imagination or original ideas
Sadly, validation will ruined the creativity If they knew they were wrong in imaginations

Well done. Not quite sure on what program you used to make it, I dare say Photoshop, but I am not going to confirm it. Anyhow, I like the simplicity of the message, rather direct and impactfull, I like how it all fits togheder rather nicely, expecially the light effects seem  quite realistic and well toned

I like how the validation is illustrated by the shadow. Something seen but not as good as one might think it is. I also like how it's over a crack, like it's trying to hide it's imperfections (not quite the right word I'm looking for but that's what my tired mind came up with ^^; ). Creativity on the other hand is bright, shining the light of imagination and inspiration. It looks like th person made the right choice of the two, but I am a bit sad that it's just slightly out of their reach....

i am curious ms woo of your ideas that provoked such a work... could you elaborate?

Well, I was thinking about how some people start out very creative people but they eventually get caught up in seeking validation/success so they start to do the same old thing everyone else is doing that gets a lot of approval from others. They are then reaching for validation/success over creativity.

I wanted to show how I think validation isn't as important as creativity, and that I think creativity is the better thing to reach for.
I also wanted to show how validation is flawed and temporary.
