[fades] browns and reds

Strange dream--

I don't remember much of it, except that I had a painting, a beautiful oil painting, that I could leap into, like a portal, to get to other places. While moving through it, I was in the world of the painting--mostly a pastoral farm setting.

Either the building the painting was hanging in was on fire, or I'd hacked someone off, and they were chasing me down, and had partially destroyed the painting, so I lept through one of the remaining shreds to wherever the portal lead--but at that point, my enemy started burning the rest of the painting, and as I was running, I could see the landscape being burned, until all that was left was a small section of farmhouse, burned at the edges, that I couldn't escape from, because all around it was white void.

Odd way to wake up, anyway.
