You can be proud of it yeah... and I guess I understand more why it's one of your very fav with this explanation. Must be really satisfying to come back to work with such a beautiful piece. At least I would have feel that way :)

Thank you. Considering I like your work so much I take that as a great complement.

TEMPEST is part of a bigger project. The painting is part of children's book. Here is the page that tempest appears on The Four Winds

really nice piece. i love the way it flows. Was it a conscious thought to make the tree look like a figure being pushed off the cliff by the wind? was this in painter?

I am glad you liked the peice. To answer your questions. 1. Yes the tree is supposed to resmeble a human just so people can more easily connect to it and feel like it was being pushed around. and 2. yes the peice was painted in Painter. I am going to be doing some tweeking to it and then I will put it up for prints in the coming weeks.

Thanks for your comments.
Matt
