      Oh thank you. ^_^
      This one found a paying home soon after its creation, so apparently it's popular. Smile
      I am hoping to use that color combo again...

    The blue in the distance is hauntingly pretty, it adds intrigue and compliments the earthen tones of the forest floor beautifully. Speaking of the forest floor, I love how dimensional it is, it feels uneven and rough, which contrasts the single blossoming tree starkly. This feels like it has a story to it, something quiet and easy to overlook, but rich. It's great to see more work from you around here Smile

      It came very close to being overdone - I had originally planned a scene with fantasy creatures, but my "background" took on so much life I didn't want to hide any of it! I still want to do a couple of creature paintings in the same palette, sort of implying they all belong to the Wood...

        Ooh, that could end up as a neat mini series of sorts! I think you made a good call to leave them out of this one, its a gorgeous piece.
