Artwork Description

This piece is about a path that leads to an old and mysterious forest, that few people dare to enter. A small sumac tree stands there, last frail beacon of the known world before entering the unknown. Hic sunt dracones. --- More art from Pierre Carles at www.pierrecarles.com.

Thanks a lot for the nice comment. I just discovered your new silver jewlevery, it is just amazing. And with Opals and Labradorites ... my favorite stones ! I love your work, really.

Many thanks Kay. Whenever ideas or motivation run short, whenever I get in a bad mood, drawing trees make me feel better and more confident. Which means that with my present state of mind, I should really start drawing something along the lines of the amazonian rainforest, at least ! Laughing out loud

Pierre, please forgive me for not commenting on this earlier. I thought I had. I guess it didn't go through. I love this. You excell at trees.

Merci Martine. C'est aussi le préféré de la plupart des gens, d'après les échos que j'en ai eus. Mais j'imagine peut-être pourquoi dans votre cas: je suis sûr que vos gnomes de bois rêveraient de vivre dans un tel endroit. Smile
