Got the Golden Touch?

Otherwise known as....The Midas Touch

 

Meaning

1. The term “Midas touch” is used to refer to an ability to make anything potentially profitable.

 

2. Someone has a Midas touch which allows him or her to succeed where others fail.

 

Another meaning refered to having the Midas Touch as being able to turn things into gold and money and teasures(into profit), but that its not a good thing b/c in the actual story, having the "golden Touch" backfired on Midas b/c EVERYTHING he touched turned into gold, food, clothes, people etc....so he couldn't really eat anything nor wear clothes b/c they became too heavy and all his loved ones...well turned into gold statues....

 

This image was a challenge to myself....b/c I usually add so much color (or adjust the color that is already there) to an image...It just comes automatically to me to do that.....but for this image I wanted a dream-like, airy feeling...to focus on having "the Golden Touch"......so hopefully I captured what I was going for....
