Soft whisper in a quiet room by alifann Soft whisper in a quiet room by alifann
This is one my favourite paintings I made. I wanted to represent this essence of death and people who die in their sleep.

The essence of death, from a dark and gloomy point of view, is very clear and was carried out beautifully, taking advantage of the characteristics of oils. :clap:

This is something an old master would have created, and wouldn't look out of place in any art museum. Superb work.

You successfully completed your goal. It is very sad and eerie at the same time. The person is there in the bed cover in the pattern on it, the wrinkles of the cover, and the way the painting seems to be unraveling itself in the lower left corner. The flower closest to the the edge of the covered pillows speaks volumes of a past life. So does the small size of the bed; the person was alone in the bed when the passed, say a great grandmother in a small room that became her home within a larger home, hopefully with family.

It actually brings back memories: sad, sweet, and beautiful loving ones. Thank you for sharing this piece!

I know it is dark for most people who see this painting but I find it quite nostalgic yet "cosy" (there's so much peace here, quiet) and the bed somehow reminds me of the atmosphere found near elderly people, specifically those that await death by age, but aren't sad about it. They've had a rough life, yet lived throu all of it with a smile on their face and death doesen't scare them.
And may I just add that your technique is superb.

It's unlikely that I could say anything new about this. The wrinkles in the bedding look soft and damp. I actually like the way the painting trails off into 'unfinished' areas towards the bottom corners. It speaks of age and melancholy.

At first glance I wanted to be there sitting on that bed, but I passed up the image on Pinterest then went back and clicked on it. If I were to go I would want to go in bed of flowers, softly in my sleep, just slip away. You were inside my mind.
