I got my inspiration for this painting from the fantastic song Somniloquist by the British band Messenger. It represents the feeling you can get by staring straight into the rising sun after a sleepless night.

 

Messenger – Somniloquist Lyrics

There’s a far away place in the back of your mind
Where freedom’s not bound by the shackles of time
Instead just an infinite ocean you’ll find when you close your eyes

There’s a forgotten feeling in the depths of your soul
There’s a yearning for meaning before you get old
The warmth all around you should keep out the cold that you hold inside

Suddenly I can see through the darkness outside
With spirals around me of colours that I can’t describe
Now this new dawn surrounds me
Assures me if just for a while…

There’s a wise man once told me a long time ago
That you might not make it to the end of the road
But forge your own chains in the quivering cold and you’ll free your soul

Suddenly I can see through the darkness outside
With spirals around me of colours that I can’t describe
I’m encircled by madness but I’ve never felt so alive
Now this new dawn surrounds me, assures me if just for a while…
