Windows To The Soul


I used to be depressed back when I had plenty to be depressed about and when I was depressed I painted many images that looked like this. Happy Friday.

Is the sub-title of this piece "the night has a thousand eyes"?...I can't count that far myself but it looks like it....and I'm glad you're happier nowadays.

Whatever your state of mind was, that's a powerful piece of work. Was it comissioned? Would make a great book cover for a horror novel. Good to hear you're not depressed now tho of course :o)

Hey guys, thanks for your comments, my wife really dislikes these
paintings which were all done before we met. I'm in a much better place now. Life is beautiful.

I'm sorry that you were depressed and I'm really glad that you aren't anymore.

This is such a gripping piece of art. I must have really looked at it for a long time. It's absolutely amazing (the eyes look so real.)

Thanks, I have to say these paintings were the best part of what I've come to call "my long dark night of the soul" I throw in a couple more from time to time.

I hope you get depressed again sometime Steve, this is awesome. Just kidding... I like psychological art.

You can't beat a good depression.
