I should have been killed, raped, beaten,robbed,
I should have just crawled up in the corner and died,
only, i didn't. 
And now i'm here.
Right now, looking at the painting and i'm thinking, no, i'm KNOWING that
I could never do that.
It's just a masterpeice.
enough with deviant art, become a proffesional artist, don't land some job,
get a carrier.
Cause i know that i could never do this, and you can, 
you don't understand how important it is to do this,
DITCH US go live in hollywood!
just, your work is to good for us.....

Wow I love how you have approached to that subject of morality. It is dreamy, yet not, which it is exactly like to everybody experiencing the death of somebody they know. At that point, the reality of mortality has not really kicked in yet, creating a surreal, but yet sad feeling; however, in despite of this, there is still a light, a hope, to its end. I just love it! :heart: Beautiful painting!

Speaking of dreams, that lamp post looks like a trickle of water. Gives a whole different implication for me, at least. I do very much like that corner, for some reason. It's just so calm :)

Very special work. The daylight coming in, illuminating the face and hair is divine. I love how the hair spreads out on to the pillow that's very attention grabbing.

Hello,
Can I use this piece as art to accompany a short story collection I'm selling as an e-book? There are three short stories, and the theme is sleep and dreams. I'll provide appropriate links.
Thank you for your consideration.
