The dream v2 by Spyrre The dream v2 by Spyrre
Another surreal painting including dark backround, trees and a deer-like animal, based on a weird sketch that I drew some time ago.

I worked more on this because I wasn´t satisfied with the old version... It has now more detail, and I think that the feeling of depth is better too... Was thinking still of adding few bright coloured leaves or birds on the large tree, but not sure if I do it.... Still this is my favourite painting so far.

Painted with oilpaints.
This is finished version of this painting: [link]


This seems to have turned into a small series of dream-based paintings... Here are other two:
"Restless dreams": [link]
"Little daydream": [link]

This painting proves to be very evocative for me as well, due to the background of 'The Dermal Highway', the fictional universe from which my writing and artwork emerges.

In the setting, the first ecology, colloquially known as Eden, was also called 'The White Lands' and white trees that grew from it were the first expressions of Life. There is further I could recount to you about this setting, but really, that's up to you if you wanted to message me about it. You might find the parallels interesting, especially the unicorn aspect.

From any other perspective, this is a marvelous, outstanding piece of oil work, and I applaud it.
