Ive been reading the Inheritance series...I just adore the Elves in the story..they sing to the trees and nature...

I really tried to pay attention to details in this one... plz view at full screen and CCs are welcome!

First, overall impression is beautiful, well balanced, your eye flows from her beautiful face through the musical notes! Amazing! Then you start looking for the secrets, are there others in the forest, is it just light and shadows? Because it is so overall appealing you enjoy taking a long lingering look around! Her hair accents the color in the shrooms, with another perfect triangle taking your eye from her face and then all around the path. The wide range of greens adds to the lush forest. The play of light and shadows continues through all layers. The magic of the Forest Dwellers and their love of music is everywhere. I am so honored to have my carvings and the story my wife wrote inspire this beautiful art.

Although the concepts are not new, the color pallete and details are beautiful. It's a fun piece to explore with lots of hidden details and in one word it says everything that elves are - magic.

I also appreciate that the artist has given credit to her inspiriations and that speaks both highly of callibre of the person, but also serves to invite more in depth understanding of the piece. Making this connection gives a peek into the eye of the artist and the person behind the artwork.

Also, I love... love the fact that the artist has managed to develop a full pallette of colors. In this one piece I can see nearly all of my favorite colors put together into a great composition. Combining the different layers from the original models for the piece is done with great care and its an enjoyable piece.
