Valley of forgotten Lovers

'One night i dreamed of something, a place that i visited. The whole world is colored in a rather odd selection of pastel colors. Statues of despair that looks like a figure of some sort with vegetation growing on it's back. What.. place is this... well some may say that this is known as the "Valley of Forgotten Lovers"..
Heartbroken people that gave everything to someone, receiving no feedback. No love in return. No appreciation. All those grief weighing on the person's back and everyone sees it as a beautiful tragedy of some sort. Love itself is already a tragedy... But it is also a beautiful one and there's nothing like it. I myself never fall in love before.. maybe i did but i just can't seem to remember...
The statues seems to be figure of those who has been isolated and forgotten due to problem regarding love. Maybe love itself is something even the cosmic wouldn't understand. Maybe i'm thinking too much about it...
while this dream seems surreal... it's.. an intriguing one for me to be in. I'll stay a bit before waking up.'

Hello!
Thank you very much for reading the whole story and i hope you enjoy the painting i made!
I know this is something quite different from the usual painting i made. I received feedback from my viewers and friends alike and a lot of it seems to center about getting out of my comfort zone. I think i'm going to do just that by doing paintings that has more different color styles, more weirder subjects or something with a new perspective. What do you think about this?
Feedback is greatly appreciated and i wanna know what you folks think about the new experimental paintings i did :)
Thank you very much! I hope you have a great day!

The moment I read that, I remembered my own memories of when I tried to be in a relationship with a girl. It didn't work because one of many reasons, I was manipulated. Tricked. Deceived, whatever it can be called. In most of my years of existence, I eventually gave up on relationships; I was convinced I wasn't really relationship material. However, I learned that relationships are a "life choice", not a "requirement". So I may fantasize about a relationship because it'll very likely won't happen for me, that's ok. I made up my mind being alone; I'm not truly "alone" either.

I must say Tom, I near-immediately had a connection with this piece with the literature you wrote. In fact, ever since I discovered your work, I wrote a couple of pieces and currently in-progress with my own character in the world of Dr. Rabbit's own travels. But I'm not brave enough to post them. I say this, because some of your work also helps with confidence, if only slightly. I wish you well my friend.

Thank you very much for the kind words, i am really happy and delighted to hear that this piece speak to you :)
I am sorry to hear about the relationship problems that you had in the past but maybe they are going to teach us and build us a better future.
I am also happy that my painting and writing makes you start writing your own story in this bizarre world aswell :D
Happy writing and creating!

Wow this is so beautiful and a really interesting concept behind it. Can really grasp the sense of eeriness and loneliness in this piece.. :0
