5"x7" - would like to accomplish a larger piece, but I'm not sure of the black dashes. Do you feel they are too much? ALL feedback is welcome! Can you figure out what it is?

Warmth,

Hrm, *scratches head*, no, I don't know exactly what this is :P

However, what I can glean from your title and the effect, it appears to be ice -- on a rock? Through a window? Pastel me clueless, ReNae :P

I do like the black "dashes", I don't know why, but I do. The painting does remind me of how a mossy rock would look if it were covered with a sheet of ice after freezing rain. The black would be the lichen and the whitish places accumulated snow?

Driving me nuts, tell me!

Hugs!

Roan,

ROFLMAO! Driving you nuts, eh? *snicker*

It is frost on one cold winter's morn! The sun was just rising, hence the yellow and the pattern just struck me.

I like the rock with lichen though! Always did love going to the Alpine areas of the mountains and looking at all those muted colors on the rocks, such lovely patterns!

Hmmmmm, now where is the picture of those rocks! hehehehe

Thanks!

Warmth,
ReNae
