Forgotten-dream by petercmatthews Forgotten-dream by petercmatthews
FORGOTTEN DREAM
Oil on Belguim canvas. 3M X 1.4M

This was a commission by a friend of mine. The cherub is his son. The story is open to interpretation. I photographed the girl and my friend's son and built them into a composite image I created in photoshop with different elements. Because of the detail I need high resolution images to work from... and took me 5 months to paint. I paint between 5am and 8am in the mornings before I have to do the work that pays the rent.

I love scenes like these, where it's streched outhorizontally so you can see the atmosphere and meaning of the pose

Thanks to the new hot topic of surrealism I was able to discover this beautiful piece. I'm so happy you left it up to interpretation, so many people feel they have too defend their art by defining it. Sometimes there's not a reason for it, and that's my favorite meaning behind creating it. Lovely job!
