Talking Forest, a new mural in town

 Click image to enlarge!


Today I share not only my own take on this mural but also the work of Henrietta Kozica who has painted this 78m long mural and made my town a bit more beautiful.





At this point the mural is not finished and Henrietta Kozica is still painting.

Today I join in two art challenges with the same image. I used 2 different editing software's to create this. The basic image can be seen in the post below this one. The "ghost" is my granddaughter, peeking through the mist.

First of all, I would like to thank you for the congratulations that I have been published. I won´t be rich but it pleases my mind :)

Today the art is all about the sky. I had a problem with what to share so I choose these three.

The first two is from my trip to Yellowstone. Not sure I have finised the Spirit animal yet.I might ad a native indian to it.

The last one is the morning mist of yesterday outside my town. I wanted to ad a texure or something but it jusat spoiled the image. So I keep it as it is. Nature and camera is sometimes good enough. I hope you think so too.

Finally, one of my works has been published in 1240 ART MAGAZINE Q4 2017.
First time I have been recognized as an Artist officially. 😊

Until now I just thought so myself. I did not get a presentation but at least I am published.
The horse "Escape" is mine.
