Forest Dream Meaning
Psychological Meaning: The forest is often a symbol of the unconscious. Its animals and plants can be symbols for the instincts and emotions. If you dream of trying to find your way through a dark forest this may represent how you are searching for a breakthrough in your waking life.

Found here: [link]


Up till now I haven't really thought that the forest from my dreams or works might be interpreted in this way. However now it seems to be quite logical and even obvious that it might also be perceived as a symbol of the unconscious...
I've always associated forest with some difficulties, hardships appearing in life or, on the contrary, as the place of solitude and safety, far away from problems.
All of that combined with that fragment of interpretation from dreamsleep.net and Freud's theory (especially the one dealing with creativity and artists) make it right now even more intriguing and reflective.
I've browsed through my works quickly trying to analyse them from that more psychological point of view. Have you ever tried the same? At times I'll catch myself thinking what would a psychiatrist say if he saw my works. What kind of person would he think me to be?

Anyway, it turns out that this is my most optimistic piece so far. Most fairytale-like. And there is no bitterness, no sorrow, no "suffering lady in a black dress" (this time, beware! :giggle:).

I do hope that you'll like it.
As usually I turn on that critique mode.
Feel free to tell me what comes to your mind when you're looking at this piece, or what should be improved... It helps me much!
Thank you in advance for your support, always means world to me :heart:

This piece is amazing. I'll start off by saying that. Sure there are quite a few pictures out there with someone reading a book and getting lost in the story, but this one pulls you in more. Being a vivid reader myself I would love to go where she is and read,, write, draw, whatever. The background is so beautiful. The waterfall flowing into a small gentle stream, bright, but at the same time dark blue and purple flowers all over the place. I give a thumbs up to :iconfeainne: . Job well done. I am eager to see more from you ^_^.

this piece of artwork is very beautiful and it seems like it came from a book! the background is very beautiful and.....enchanted! the girl is very beautiful and it looks like as if it was from a actual movie. your picture is very good and professional. Although, the girl kind of blends in to much, maybe it could be better if you make her stand out more. that is all! besides that fact that she blends in, i think you did a wonderful job at creating this picture! oh, the waterfall scene is just so magnificent! i hop you would create more enchanted looking pictures in the future! good job!
