Oh wow! It is such a breath-taking piece of work! It has so much meaning to me from just a quick glance. I wish I knew the full story behind this picture...

Wonderful expressions and colours.

She looks like me... *in a daze*...

Anyway! I love this picture. It has a romantic, sad, dream-like vibe that kind of turns the whole of ME into a single image. Weird, I know.

There is a Land of What Might Have Been -
It is the place where dreams we cast aside go to lie inbetween
The twilight of the night in that soft purple shade
And the palest pastels of dawn before the sun rages.
There is a Land of What Might Have Been -
And I await there for the one my pains could not see as just
A shadow covering the truest heart if looked closer at they might have seen
Here in this Land of What Might Have Been.

it has a classical, fountainhead feel to it but the title and the expressions of the characters are timeless

coooooooool...nice one dude!
the-flying-dolphin Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2005  Hobbyist
This is a gorgeous image, but something seems...I don't about it. The people look a little flat, I guess, as if they're cardboard cutouts in a 3D room. Otherwise, though, it's beautiful and evocative.
str4yk1tt3n Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2005
I don't know if I mentioned it when this was a DD...but amazing work. Totally beautiful.
Perotsu Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2005  Student

thesaddestpanda Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2005  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
This piece touches me... the facial expressions (especially the man's) are so anguished. I feel I can truly relate.

Incredible work! :heart:

wow! love the way his hand looks
...this pic reminds me of the work of Alphonse Mucha. i think it has something to do with her face...
skyrere Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005
I had to pull it up for a close up to see that the background wasn't a photo... At least I think it isn't... The whole thing is fantastic. The realistic background coupled with the almost posterized/dream like effect on the couple in the forground... You definitly deserve the DD.
Jenzay Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005
Ooh, pretty. Almost haunting, but peaceful. I see lots of contrasts here... The straight metal bars and the flowing landscape, the solidness of the chair and the curves and twists of the people... And the colours are beautiful.
blooddx66 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005
very realistic piece. I like the composition of this painting. nice job.
thiefoftime Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
It makes me think of H.P. Lovecraft stories. It's a little spooky. Nice work.
DreeamyEyes Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005

Great piece. The woman is perfect and I can relate to the man. Lovely piece.
thebleedingstar Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2005
