This was fun....I always imagined as a young boy, in finding something so amazing that no one would believe me if I even showed them... This was an Idea for a book cover. You can let your imagination run with this one and just imagine what you think they found........and i will tell you all later what these boys found.:confused:

You really got a magical view and what an exquisite choice of a mainly blue-yellow gamut!

Wow, I simply love this buddy, blue and yellow work beautifully together. I also think the way you've lit the scene is stunning.

It does not matter what the boys have found. I have found your painting! I have downloaded a copy to my computer to put on my desktop. Great colors and brush work.

Wow.. Great idea for a book cover, or an opening scene to a movie. Beautifully done! :) :) :)

John, you are amazing. I am mesmerized just by your painting. Is it a fairy? A portal? A magic stone? Outstanding again!

Really like the lighting and the choice of colours, if these boys were in my bush likely they have stumbled on a pond with fish in it.

I think what they found is a TV monitor and they realize they're on camera in the form of this painting and they're saying. . . (you guessed it). . . OMG!!!!

I'm with Tinzo and the others on this. The brushwork is perfect. You really used the natural shapes in the work to great effect by way of creating sub-textures in the designed areas. I particularly love the lateral strokes of yellow on the ground leading away from (or up to) them.

To me, it's almost like a Yellow Brick Road kind of a feel which is a very cool association that people would find delight in and of itself were they to make that association. Everybody likes the Wizard of Oz. Even if it's not conscious, it's brilliant to use little cues like that that might evoke a rich subliminal response.

The wondrous thing about being young and innocent is
discovering something magical within every turn of the
path. This most enchanting painting captures the very
essence of adventure, wonder and intrigue. The artwork
and delightful color choices are outstanding! :)

very atmospheric...:)

Very nice lighting and composition. I'm a big fan of your work!

Wow and OMG myself... never thought that this would draw this much attention lol ...Well if you all are wondering what they are looking at or have found................drum roll.................. It is an "Angel" the title of the book is "The angel in the woods" It's about these brothers that find this angel who has been hurt and they help it. but one of their friends wants to exploit it and they have to save her. .

So where do i begin...
I think I've grown since I've been working in art rage and learning from you all.

jbeau, jonwood, silvy, kenmo, J Witt, limey-g, pat1940, L Skylar Brown, D Akey and everyone else who commented and stopped by to look Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I loved painting this but as always lol there are changes afoot. the publisher wants to see the angel so I have to redo the cover. kinda like Mars book cover. I'm still working on it lol the author liked that last painting I created but now they want me to incorporate a womans face to it as well..........? Hey it's a living huh? but look at all the unused art I get to hang onto lol

again thank you all so much for stopping by and checking this Out....! more to come of this and mars lol;)
