I have not walked here before
I think
It might have just been a dream. A nightmare -- but it didn't feel frightening.
It felt so many things at once that it was as if it didn't feel at all.

This is beautifully surreal. The color scheme is so pretty and the picture gives off an aura of mystery. I know this is quite old but I found it in a recent Reddit post and couldn't ignore it. Every piece of yours is gorgeous.

This really speaks to me.  I don't fully understand the words, but it really speaks to me.  For a second, I could swear I saw things in the cloud through the doorway.  Amazing.

I'm glad when a painting resonates with someone like that. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Very mystical. Reminded me of a movie I saw once where some kids were looking for a world but only one could pass through it's gates. Very magical.

Thanks! Do you remember the name of that movie, by any chance?

I have been trying to scan my brain for the answer to that question, but all I remember clearly is that scene. =C

I do recall movies with similar scenes, but they aren't what your painting reminded me of. Such as in Ghostbusters, there is that scene where that Vigo comes from and a few other movies, but the one that I liked the most I can't recall. I will try asking my family if they recall what it was.

Still I love your painting. It is so beautiful!

I am still looking for it. I watch so much stuff that I may be mixing my movies with anime or cartoons. Though maybe I saw something similar before and then just dreamed it so it doesn't exist in the real world until you designed it and it just brought back this dream I had. XD

You never know though. I still love this art piece though. Even without the missing piece of my memory. =b

I think I remember the scene you're referring at. Structures in a waste land is a surrealist staple! Though I hadn't quite realised this when I painted this picture. :)

great work! It seems similar to a Dalí, but still your own style. Very cool!

Thanks. I was rather influenced by Dali in the early 00's, actually. :)

I'm always delighted to stumble across a piece that suggests a story.
