I've been working on this piece for a while now in small frames. I prob put in 25-30 hours into it.

Sometimes I try to explain my surreal work, so I will do my best to explain the meaning of this one.

-The two hounds stand for two conflicting sides/personalities, but stand as one being
-My floating pyramids often stand for ones higher self in most of my work, the spirit in other words
-They are connected physically and also spiritually(chained to the pyramid floating above them)
-They cannot be separated(scissors trying to cut the chain), just as one cannot be separated from themselves
-The hounds wear different harness and also are labeled with different numbers to show they are different, not the same side/personality/voice inside
-The gun between them stand for conflict with one another
-The hose connect to the gun in two places, meaning there are two possible outcomes to a decision
-The poles in the back and scarred backs stand for battered from war(aka life)
-The smoking embers from the poles stands for they are still alive(life)
-The red stands for bravery, anger, survival, drive
-The glowing red also stands for life, lighting ones way further to survive another day
-The birds stand for thoughts, each carrying with them decisions
-The chaotic sea below stands for the busy mind itself and also the world around us, full of stress and unpredictable things
-The foggy clouds in the distance stand for you cannot see far sometimes or see a clear answer always

I kept it darker in nature because I tend to view life as having a darker side to it. Oh, and the numbers are just something personal to me, so that's why I chose the ones I did.

Enjoy. :)
