-------------------


The idea morphed several times, the initial idea was a tree wrapping around the girl, with glowing orbs of light, kind of like musical notes moving upwards, which were the owls. I changed it into a horizontal left to right format and tried to integrate everything into the pattern, and give each element its own life and place in the rhythm of the picture. I had to explore a lot of new areas of artmaking that I don't have maps for, going in blind a lot of the time, but that's where the real fun is anyway.

Thanks so much. That means a LOT to me...it's taken so many years and somehow I stumbled upon this way of working, and even though I think I suck and I'm a hack, it's really cool to read when people say that to me.

Be sure you have a good attitude, even if not always easy to live with this kind of feelings or state of mind.  I hate smugness or complacency of some artists, be they famous or not, great artists or not.

Yes, I agree, I don't like complacency in others either. I'm grateful for your kind words. I find it hard to be positive about my art, and I appreciate when people are supportive because it motivates me to continue working at art :)

thank you so much. A lot of really kind words, I appreciate it.
I would say it's best to learn composition as much as you can and practice as long as possible. I work on paper, and start in pencil, then I add pastel and coloured pencils on top.
Cheers!
