This painting may not be quite what it seems at first.
The dark figure rising up from the bed is actually the embodiment of the twins rather than someone creeping up on them in the dark.
Based on a set twins I knew many years ago that made me VERY uneasy when I was around them, this is a smaller study for a much larger painting which is yet to be completed. I was trying to show the dark outer persona they project, large, brooding and menacing.
