Below the Rust

Dusk's falling on my decadent reality. My everyday landscape keeps drowning, I'm a microscopic orange stain in a rusty universe. I hope you'll come tonight... Surprising thread of my thoughts, my guide and lover, let me cross again the dark frontier of my fantasies! So close but uncertain to reach, this blurry paradise hides behind my eyelids.
Release me... and I'll fade like a drop in the infinite ocean of a dream.

'Below the Rust' is actually my biggest painting (it is 1.2 x 0.8 meters wide), and the one I have spent the longest time on. Five months, doing an average half-time work. The fact is that I can't help myself doing those small details that nobody can see. Using a 1-hair brush on a canvas that wide is totally insane!
This is only oil paint on canvas, but before starting to paint I made many sketches, and even a colorized version with photoshop (to set up the right colors).

The differences that this picture portrays is wonderful. How below the waterline everything is beautiful, fresh and full of life, while everything above is decayed and dead to a degree. But why is there a difference, is this a natural water line, is the tide going out, or is the water level decreasing, and is slowly showing off the flaws that are hidden by the water?Definitely one of the better pictures I have seen, and is truly marvelous.
