I can't tear away from this painting, there's something about it that draws me in. When I first saw the title and the thumnaill I thought Gayle was someone who was missing from the bed, and the subject was trying to fill that emptyness as best as she could by lying diagonally. I see that's not the case now but her expression is compelling, like she's troubled, afraid of loss, not quite peaceful in her sleep.

And yes, it's impressive too, but this painting is so much more than just a display of technical skill. Photorealism can be static and sterile sometimes, but this is anything but...

"The folds of a blanket are like the folds of one's mind."
I guess my mind is extremely screwed up when I sleep, then, if the blankets and my dreams are any evidence. xD

Great work!
