"Thank you all for the incredible support and kind words. So just a brief thought on this piece for those who asked. The commission was to revisit the story of Rift from a new perspective. I chose to imagine the house from the original piece decades later. I see it as a sort of "one possible future" in the story where the main character chose to bury all his troubles and memories and turn away from love. The consequence is his shell of a home years later in ruins as a symbol of his bitter empty heart had he not chosen love. And the Mound looms in the distance as a testament to his troubles all buried but impossible to hide. So now we have the dawn rising on the tormented dream sequence from the original piece and early Spring offering some sense of renewal regardless of the choices the protagonist has made or not made."

Well safe to say that I'm now searching for this. Where would I have found out about this commission? If there's anything like this ever again I'd love to be included.

It was filled almost a year ago through a private commission group on Facebook. There were several ideas that we had, brought them to David and then decided on a general idea. David then developed and took it to where it is today. Supremely thrilled with the vision and execution...Mound happens to be one of my all time favorite songs as well.

Cool... thanks for the info. I had a feeling it was through FB. I guess I wasn't part of that group at the time. Bummer but c'est la vie. I'm hoping to get in on a couple of his commissions in the future.
