This was going to be a full picture of my interpretation of mother nature but I found I quite liked it done like this so here you are.
No ref's were used this is all imaginary hope you like it:):)
Is now my new desktop wallpaper hence the length:D:D

This is very well done and colours are so delicately laid on this elegant painting, dear Amanda ... Marvellous.
May I also respectfully point out that You look great even on this new Avatar where You seem about to smile or even laugh?

Wonderful image, Amanda, but it looks nothing like Mother Nature. She looks like this, hates margarine, and it's not nice to fool her. :)
BTW. Love the new avatar. :)

Mannafig - The eye is simply fascinating.:)

I just read an article (in Thai) about Mother Nature, how we should respect and not abuse nature and Earth. In Buddhism and Hinduism, there is Mother Nature on the Earth part, she is called "Pra Mae Thoranee" which many people respect and still pray to for good harvesting.

This is a wonderful piece and i love the use of the space.
The colors are minimal but very effective.

It creates a curiosity of what she's actually looking at.
But hey, that's the point isn't it? use your imagination.

Reminds me a little of a Michael Parkes painting

Just lovely

Mike :)
