Dreams and Nighmares by RSConnett Dreams and Nighmares by RSConnett
Acrylic on Canvas, 24" x 18" March, 2010

"DREAMS and NIGHTMARES" tells what this painting is all about.

I have always been one who has vivid dreams. As a child I was afraid to sleep due to intense dreams. As an adult, I look forward to sleep for the same reason.

This is a commission for a friend.

To me... it resounds of a rebirth to a mechanical age. A continued consciousness encapsulated by the the figure of the elderly man emerging as it were from the fallen giant to encounter a world of mechanical contraptions and menace. Interesting phantasmagoria indeed.

This masterpiece truly deserves no less than being DailyDeviated. It's got the atmosphere and everything so well done! *drools and presses :+fav: button* Besides, it's nice to meet someone else who has vivid dreams, and a mutual interest - sleeping to see those dreams. ^^

I have some pretty realistic dreams too. I had a dream where something hit me in the face, and I woke up and screamed loudly.
I love the dark water effect, and the surreal characters are pretty cool. Nice work! =D
