THE WALK TO THE MOON by "Deine Lakaien"

Setting out
Restless nation
Beyond the horizons
Lands must be golden

Sister by the hand
Pure heart trusting in
Shining eyes
when she looked up at him

Come on let's walk to the moon
Come on let's walk to the moon

Freedom of choice
Triumph of the will
God made his joke
keeping still

Signs by the wayside
Leading to nowhere
Winter came
bringing hidden despair

Come on...

Hazy shapes
On a endless pain
Illusions of freedom
In nature's game
And the stars hide their lights
You can't see them weep
The air was silent
And they fell asleep

Come on...

without the benefit of knowing the song from which this was inspired, I would've thought 'faith healer' ... again your work reminds me of munch- in so far as themes more than technique. This reminds me of "By the Death Bed"

Jerry: thx for looking and for what came on your mind first.
J*: I am still a newbie in art history and I do concentrate more on single artists than on a broader view (I have to work on that). I like Munch very, very much, and his pictures of sick children I adore.
Maybe I am a norwegian/scandinavian at heart, because I feel mentally so related to many people I like (although I am humbled in their presence): Henning Mankell (author), Jan Garbarek (musician) and Munch. I feel a longing for the sea, and I enjoy rain sometimes more than the sun. Nothing like thunder when at home with candles and lying in the hammock. Because my father is much like this, too, this just HAS to do with some scandinavian ancestors. :)

Maybe as backstage info:

This is the photo I was using.

This is me on the left, and a student friend. It was hard to get a woman when shooting this pic so I had to help myself :)

you have communicated brilliantly well
my first thoughts as the painting emerged
were of children's stories by the moonlight
story telling came through both in the
composition and the moonlit color scheme

very nice work
i like munch a whole lot

Impulse, renee: I am very happy when evoking an emotion with my paintings on others. And I am even more happy when the emotion is the one that I planned :) Nothing worse than boring art. Glad you like it.
Dornberg: This perception is certainly improving by a constant look at your pictures.

Thanks all for your insight.
