Artwork Description

on a walk through the woods last summer i saw two old trees that had fallen together to make a perfect arch. i thought to myself 'thats just what a magical portal would look like: hidden in plain sight, needing only a magical being to activate it.'

I love the fairy tale feeling of this work....the little subtle details that make it special...right on down to the mushrooms. Well deserved Editors pick.

thank you for your very nice coment.as to the portal opening for you, i am sure it would;)

Guest's picture

Though I am by no means an artist of images, I can understand and appreciate the genius of others. You've captured the light beautifully. I find that I want to touch the trees, then perhaps the portal will open for me. *smiles*

Well done on Editor's Pic Jeff! Great concept!

thanks lew! i actually have an easier time with digital than i do with traditional media. i do lots of revisions at times and the costs mount up using paper, canvas, paint, etc... the freedom to explore is liberating.

I owe you a comment, I think. Thanks for yours on my Nymph! I'm just beginning with digital art. And the more I discover the progs the more I see how difficult it is. I think you did a great job with light and shadow!!!
