DESCENDING INTO DARKNESS

This painting is based on a Shiny Toy Guns album cover, We Are All Pilots. I like the sense of tranquility of this picture; it also has a kind of loneliness to it. My painting is much darker than the picture. It is meant to represent the sadness and loneliness that can be felt when depressed. The viewer is about to go down a path where there is nothing, just black emptiness. At the other side of this path, are mountains that only promise an uphill climb. This one has turned out to be one of my most popular paintings. Most people like the tranquility and the colors of the painting.
