Dreary means unsettled emotions, warm cold, undecided, confused. There are two images represented here. A figure who looks confused and uncertain and a cold wave crashing into the composition. The seagull is flying against the strong winds. Two flowers magnolias that represent love. There is a white angel that is out of focus but could be interpreted as a white witch. All of these figures create more of an illusion of the meaning of dreary.
A collage of images featuring seagulls an eagle a white angelic looking figure and a younger figure running away holding a red flower blossom.
