• Key to your problems
    Is not easy to find
    It takes courage and heart
    And peace of mind
    So wherever you are
    And whatever you be
    The key to your problem
    Is not always easy to see
    Just stop for a moment
    And look up to the clouds
    Imagine a bird has all the answers
    For crying out loud
    A crow is not a poet or a logical
    Beast
    A parrot can talk about everything
    Or mimic silly words at least!
    But the eagle is known for soaring
    Up High
    Is that where all the answers lie?
    The Key to your problems
    Is only a moment away
    Just stop, look and listen
    And soon a crow will appear
    With the key to your problems
    Now, don't you worry dear! - katiegab715

  • Take My Key of Dreams

    Take my key of dreams
    For anything that´ll go
    Not all is what it seems
    Thru the keyhole’s glow

    Stretch your own wings
    Flow them thru a twist
    The character inside sings
    What your traits has kissed

    Roads must be two ways
    One is to your reply
    The other with head plays
    Wherein the interiors fly

    Love is in its fine tresses
    Falling down to the earth
    Mind and ability abolishes
    Each of its possess worth

    Sometimes you’ll find a key
    To your instant problems
    It might have a sure way
    To what it after that becomes

    Learn thru your oversight
    All moves toward vitality spin
    There is no wrong or right
    Only the ones that will win - Peter S. Quinn
  • I was happy Caroline had these shoes because it's a bit similar to the bird's wings
  • Other strange coincidence, a friend just told me that "Crow" is the name of a man who landed a plane in emergency in Poland yesterday and who became a hero.
  • The key is directly related to Caroline's story... it's also connected to the place where I made the shooting. It was a bit scary, there were these high buildings all around us and every side was closed, still there were doors and gates everywhere. I thought a key among this closed space would be a cool touch.
  • The crow symbolizes the "dark moment" but it's also the element that sends the key. The bird is falling on her while she is going up...
  • I don't know what this ladder was doing there, it was a good coincidence.
  • Isn't it such a cute little hand?
  • Where there is light, there is hope...
  • Random watchers, witnesses of the scene.
  • She is pale but very much alive, her eyes open, looking to the sky (see a detail below).

Sometimes, you find the key to your problems in the dark moment. There is always a magic door and a key near you. The light and the solution aren't far. Sad events can be a source of enrichment too. The bird I drew isn't an eagle or a parrot, it's a crow. Model: Caroline Madison.

You can view here below (in the comments section) a detail, the work in progress, the scene from another angle and several other Pencil Vs Camera works...

You can find several interviews about the Pencil Vs Camera series and about my other concepts as well at this link.

The above picture is dedicated to Caroline, the model.

Take My Key of Dreams

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Take my key of dreams
For anything that´ll go
Not all is what it seems
Thru the keyhole’s glow

Stretch you own wings
Flow them thru a twist
The character inside sings
What your traits has kissed

Roads must be two ways
One is to your reply
The other with head plays
Wherein the interiors fly

Love is in its fine tresses
Falling down to the earth
Mind and ability abolishes
Each of its possess worth

Sometimes you’ll find a key
To your instant problems
It might have a sure way
To what it after that becomes
