Hi everyone,

Enjoying all the interesting work in this area, and thought I'd share this painting for comment. It began as an interpretation of a "wilderness" poster and morphed into something else towards the end! Oils, approx. 16" x 20".

Re: duirwaigh

I really like it. Like the colours and sense of depth. Very intriguing. I want to know where those stairs lead.

Hey I just noticed you live in Melbourne too, hi neighbour

I love the stairs and the mysteries they envoke within the depths of an ancient tree! Very nice!

Thanks so much everyone, and howdy to neighbour Jacqui! While I was painting this one I was reading some of Charles De Lint's books, and I guess some of the lovely fantasy world seeped in. Gail

I like the roots. I wonder what they could morph into.

The roots are a bit creepy, aren't they? Look as though they're already morphing into something nasty. Gail

Re: duirwaigh

Nicely done! The roots like a carpet of moss to me. Kinda like the 'front yard' to the place. I dig the 'darkness' factor to the whole piece too. The light backgrounds adds a nice touch of depth. The only thing I would add is some 'glowing' eyes peering out of the doorway. Love it!

Re: duirwaigh

Thanks, Chris. The roots are carpeted in moss, as they were in the reference photograph. Of course there was no door or steps...I was painting away and decided I could see steps - so suddenly I had a faery thing happening. I'd planned to paint a half-open door to give it a bit more mystery, but after a few unhappy attempts just painted a closed door. Oh, well. Gail
