"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference." ~ Robert Frost

Batik, a Javanese tradition, is the concept of dyeing and waxing a piece of cloth repeatedly to create a picture. The wax deflects the dye from getting to a particular spot on the cloth.

I chose an abstract sun because it reminded me of the Disney movie, Tangled. That movie to me represented the concept of being free and falling in love, the two most needed emotions for human beings. I chose the cool/warm color schemes because I liked the idea that two opposites although clashing, can create such an amazing picture.
