beautiful colors and composition. I admire your ability to wrangle watercolors and how each surface (dark wood, mushrooms, glowing spirits) is handled differently.

Why thankees. It still reads as unfinished, to me. I think it's the big shelf mushrooms, but not sure why.

I think color-wise, they stand out the most--maybe that's why? I love that rust orange, though.

It might just be the jarring brightness of them, that's true. Hmm. I've been looking at it for a year and I just refuse to go back and overwork it, now. But yeees! Rust orange is the best.

Wow- This is awesome! I LOVE the forest spirit! It's so odd, so un-human- the way nature spirits should be.

Thank you! The anthropomorphizing of every sort of alien/nonhuman critter has always bugged me. Hence, this guy's sluglike weirdness. That and probably saw "Spirited Away" too often.

I don't know if there is such a thing as watching "Spirited Away" too often. :) Love that movie! It has influenced me as well.

And I feel the same way- why would aliens or faeries necessarily look like humans? It's cool to see some completely otherworldly creatures.
