This piece starts with the film “Night Watch.” I loved that this film had its own version of a vampire story, including a different world. In particular, there is a certain unconscious state shown in the film that inspired me visually. In one particular scene, a boy falls backwards as his eyes leave orange trail paths. That is what led me to create this image.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

After painting a dark background, I simplified eye shapes and added trails of dots that followed both eyes. This painting documents my variation of dot sizes. Following this painting I began experimenting more with dark colored backgrounds.


  1. This one does have a kind of eerie feel about it, which makes sense now that I've read the background on it. Nice job! :)

    Thank you.

    'Glad to know I was successful with my image - even if it was "eerie."
