That's creative. A few things come to mind when I look at it. Where do you get your ideas? Did you have crystals on a table and draw this, or did you take a hike and see something that triggered this? You're very good at what you do.
How creative and beautiful. Your work would look great on science fiction book covers, Lana!!!Hugs, JJ
Very mystical.All the stones look like figures to me, mystics frozen in time.
This definitely has an otherworld feel to me. I could see this on a book cover too.
Christina; Thanks much!My ideas come from various places. I've always been intrigued by the megaliths of the British Isles & this is an example of that. It was inspired by Avebury & the idea's been rolling around in my head for quite a long time now. I looked over some photos of various parts of Avebury before I painted it, but that's about it.Dreams of Glastonbury is another megalith-inspired painting, although the tor stone was torn down centuries ago. Pentre Ifantasy (aka; Birds of Rhiannon,) was inspired by a Welsh megalith that still stands today.Other paintings stem from other things, of course. Things like "Eye Candy" are just pure fantasy. Some are images from my dreams (like "Dreamwork.") My bird paintings stem from a lifelong love of birds. Some of my paintings (like "Sunest at Cedar Bay" & "Misty Autumn Morning," are inspired by photos.I guess you could say that my paintings come from the outer worlds of nature & mythology & the inner world of dreams.
jj; Thank you! Unfortunately I've never had much luck in that vein...miladysa; That's a cool way to look at it. :) I also wanted the stones to seem more substantial than the land they were on & the sky they were under.charles; Thanks, hon. Ironic that I regularly visit the blog of Tor books' art director (& comment more than anyone else, typically,) yet she's never visited mine...
Yeah, this is very cool, like a shimmering dancing Stonehenge -- "healing center" or mystic gathering place and all.I dig.
erik; Thanks. :) I've actually shied away from doing anything based specifically on Stonehenge, itself, as I think that megalith gets enough attention as it is. Just about any other British Isles megalith is fair game, though. *L*
I really like this one, but don't ask me to say why. Sometimes a piece just grabs me...this one did as soon as I saw the picture come up in my reader.
You're so freaking talented!Seriously, your perspective is amazing, there's such depth in this ... the shadows, etc. Really makes me feel like I'm in a circle!
travis; That's good enough for me. ;) Thanks!drowsey; You're too kind. I'm glad you "feel" it. :)
i love the colors on this one. very calming.
This is lovely. One keeps discovering new facets as one looks at it.
Another cool painting. Thanks for sharing it.
nw, rani & shauna; Thank you. :)
Some inner circles are impenetrable, but this one looks inviting, if not supportive.
jr; Thanks for the input. :)
Dreamlike. And lovely. Simply lovely...
Steve; Thank you. I appreciate it.
I did a couple paintings like that a few years back.... Stenness in Scotland and Stonehenge. I couldn't help myself but to add sparkles... and deep shadows.Love the simplicity of this one, Lana. It feels like a Dreamscape.
michelle; Thanks. There are so many awesome megaliths throughout the British Isles! Most of my other, similarly-inspired pieces are much more showy & colorful. I wanted this one to seem almost abstract.
Any pairing of purple and green feels mystical for me for some reason. I really like your painting. It's interesting that you chose a perspective that sees only 1/4 of the circle. (I don't know why it's interesting, it just is. LOL):)
aine; Glad you like it. :)
I also feel the colors are so calming and mystical. I like how the ground gradually morphs into the sky. It does have an 'otherwordly' feel. LOVE it!!!
Thanks, chris. :)
I &hearts the look and the Stongehenge feel to this painting, and the way the "rocks" suggest human figures circling. Cool.
tt; Thank you. :)
Very nice. Love the colors u've used in the painting.
Thank you, punam. :) I appreciate you taking the time to offer me your input!
