FULL VIEW FOR A BETTER LOOK.

This is the last of my unfinished paintings that I've worked on over the years. I kind of had the idea that she is like a phoenix going around and renewing the forest, basically like the coming of fall when the leaves turn colour and fall off awaiting the next season to grow anew. So the leaves look a little like flames and a bit like the colour of fall, the same with the grass. I guess that is how I kind of thought of it. It wasn't planned that way from the beginning, I just forgot what I was doing because I haven't painted on it for a while. I had to make a new vision so that I could inspire myself to paint. It isn't the best painting, but I like it, I hope you do too. I know I can do even better in future paintings and now all I have are blank canvases to start anew. The picture isn't the greatest, kind of blurry, can't show the detail. So I'm going to post a close up of the figure later. Size is 36in. X 48in. done in acrylic.

Here's a link for a closeup of the figure [link]

I love how the tree looks like fire. :D Are those cobwebs on the other tree or just wisps of air? :)

Jonsama Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012
Thank you very much, those are wisps of smoke, she is like a Phoenix burning everything for renewal next spring. Haha, heck it can be however you want to interpret it, that is the beauty of art. If artist told the whole story then there is nothing left for the viewer:D
