This painting is a far stretch from anything I've ever done. I used to suffer from night terrors. I don't so much anymore, but I've been reading about them more and more. These things can be frightening. This being stares at you, suffocating you, sits on your chest - and haunts you. He never moves, yells, screams ... nothing. He's just there. You feel like you're awake and you scream. Nobody hears you. Ever.
