Gorgeous, June! Stout and proud, not to mention a particularly frolicking path for some chittering squirrels. Love the scale. Love the softness of it and the easy curves. This is a real haven kind of environment. Says safety and stability, with a sort of Chip n' Dale, Whinnie the Pooh kind of toddling sweetness. . . though certainly for all ages. But accessible to the very young as well. Put together a book with this kind of feel and kids when they grow up will keep thinking back to it, especially the ones who want to become children's authors because of the magic they felt when reading those earlier books in their lives.

Go June!!!!!

A fantastical fantasy tree, I can just picture an elf lazily leaning againt the trunk, snoozing in the afternoon sun.

Thanks to Jules, DA and especially James watching how you used the airbrush on some of your videos helped me in using it on this painting. Now I'll have to learn to paint elves. :)

Enug - I'm really glad my videos have helped you out. I certainly know that I have picked up a fair few ideas from watching other peoples videos, there is a ton of stuff out there on Youtube.
