Really wonderful!
The idea, the rendering, the colors, the atmosphere, the clarity, the perspective (i like "strange" points of view), the dreamy/watery/translucent(or is it transparent?)/immaterial/soft feel etc. And it is perfect for the "sleep" theme.
Lovely!

thanks,you get it so right,I wanted to capture the strange feeling of being lost and powerless in the dreams...or fill with night terror nightmares.I intended to make it as sweet as terrifying in the same proportion:when you sleep you dont know ''where you´ll go''.The image was more strong in my mind,but my hand ''refused''to cooperate:))

Perplitudine said...

I think you did manage to comunicate all that.
There is some bitter as well as sweet in there, for the fact that the sleeper is very "deep" inside the dream (and seen from a high angle, bird's view, which classically means the subjects is in a "weaker" position, with the blanket that grows and looms and takes over the room etc), that is completely surrendered to its logic, and that, yes, can be scary and confusing.
:)
Thanks for the quick and interesting/thought out replies!
