Ok. This may not be for everyone, but stay with me. I am trying to replicate a painting a friend of mine had painted and gifted to me some 30 years ago. Never photographed it, I was in love with it, and unfortunately it got destroyed. Now, I have done a sketch and adding it as an attachemet.

Here it goes - The paint is as a protrait, not landscape. The background is dark - black and green, with some greys-blue.... but more like abstract. It is just a dark background. In the middle, Ernie from sesame street. He is standing. Wearing his usual jumper, which is like broken at the bottom (waist area), as if extremely worn-used. He is wearing nothing form there to the feet. He is like an infant-baby when it comes to his genitals, like a boy-doll. Around his face, the background is a little lighter, like he is a bit glowing out of joy.

He is looking a little up, with that genuine happy face of complete bliss and innocence that Ernie has.

He is mostly frontal, a little inclined looking towards the left of the pain (left of the observer). On the lower corner, and it extends to cover the view of some of Ernie´s legs, there is a woman´s leg wearning some high stockings, red and white horizontal stripes. We only see one leg, but it is clear that there is a woman with her legs spread open.

That painting always struck me as the innocence, purity, and true bliss of someone like Ernie, having just likely lost his virginity as a truly loving experience, yet the sordid reality of the woman likely being a prostitute and the dark background. It made me think every time of all those moments when we are ecstatic about events in our lifes, that may really have a much darker side that we are just not seeing.

It is impossible to have the painting re-done by the original artist, unfortunately, but I would like to recapture the feeling. Very dark, but with that unbeatable bliss of the first time - first achievement we all experience at some point.

Size should be approximately 26x40 inches, fairly big, but can be made a little smaller to fit any other standard sizing.
