Artwork Description

Oil on canvas, 55x40 cm, used as cover on book of historical fantasy from central Europe. I really liked to paint nature and forgoten statues of slavic gods. For person I used myself. I had only trouble with hand, It's visible on original that his fingers are under earth but all people asked me why he has so short fingers, because simply on small cover it wasnt visible. This is older version, on new I repainted his hand so his fingers are above ground and nobody asks me anymore Smile

Thank you so much James, (btw. you do great work with pencils Smile This fantasy has diffrent kind of atmosphere, it was for me easy to catch as I had some interest in slavic gods and grew up on this culture more than on anglo-german. Today I would like to repaint right side of picture, but I have so much ideas that I haven't time to paint something for second time only for myself. Maybe when I will be older and out of inspiration Laughing out loud

Marvellous painting, Jana, spectacular work on those trees and the forest....you have certainly managed to achieve a European feel with this one...oh love also the statues and water effects, and your figure is suitably mysterious!

Art at its best.
