This picture reminds me of these strange fairytales somebody read us when we are children. Beautiful, but horryfing in some way we can hardly understand. The human loneliness, the silent despair. The great abyss between hope and madness.

Maybe,after all we keep being children.

I think he can make it to the other side if he's motivated enough.

Seems like the mountains would better have been even blurrier.

I don't usually comment on your pieces because I generally feel they are as polished as they'll get.
But I think this piece has some real potential, I like your message but I feel like the signs are unnecessary almost redundant concidering what you seemed to have worked on with the dark to light in the background. A bit of expansion on that concept would really benefit this image (not a lot, just a bit)
I think the image holds enough explanation on it's own with out the lettering.

It's one of the few images I've seen from you that carries a pretty profound statement with out being too glaringly "over the top".

Well done.
