Francisco de Goya, "El sueño de la razón produce monstruos". (Etching, c. 1798)

When reason goes to sleep, the monsters come out.

Irrational nightmares, or fantastic creatures? Deranged bats and owls attack the artist, as the guardian cats rouse, but one owl is offering a brush... or is he stealing?

sorry you didn't place higher, you definately deserved to be atleast 3rd place Sometimes hard work doesn't pay off around here

author says:

Well thank you for encouragement on the bats and owls pic... barely hoped for fourth but given that it's pretty easy to misunderstand the theme as "copy a painting" I figured some voters might score it lower. At least the contest made me finally get around to doing this image. Appreciate it Angela

Howdie stranger!
