I must say you use wonderful vivid colours . Might I guess that your "inner" world is so wonderful too?

Have you ever read "Anne of Green Gables" by LM Montgomery? The woman in this picture reminds me of Anne's spirit.
In case you haven't read this book, it's the story of an imaginative, intelligent young girl growing up in a Canadian farmhouse, late 19th century. Anne loves pretending and making up stories about fairies connected with nature.

Kate from Elfwood- You have captured the very essence of Yavanna! A gentle earth mother who grows the beauty of the earth... it's so detailed and colourful... I've seen it on many Tolkien site around the net.

Wow, the detail and color are great. Did you wait til every single layer dries as you drew flowers? I'd never have patience for such a painting. PS: hey, is her head a little small, or is it just me?

You have a great command of detail. It's often hard to bring off a nice composition with so much happening, but you have done it well.

Thank you! I took me AGES to do all the detail. : ) I don't think I'll do anything as detailed any time soon. I'm glad to hear it was worth the effort, though.

What a lovely painting, full of sunshine and color! Her hair is georgeous and her dress a graceful swing of green. I love all those dainty touches of flowers too. Great work!

Art at its best.
