Inspired by Painting Flowers by All Time Low from Tim Burton/Disney’s Alice movie soundtrack.
I “painted” these flowers with the stuff inside glow sticks. I broke them open and used them like glow in the dark paint, then shot this image in a dark room with a 30 second exposure. I wish I could find my setup shots. I bought the glow sticks at a hardware store and the guy who helped me find them asked why I needed them in so many colors. I told him my idea for the photograph and he looked at me like I was a crazy person :P
When I wake up,
The dream isn’t done.
I wanna see your face,
And know I made it home.
If nothing is true,
What more can I do?
I am still painting flowers for you.
