Castles in the sky

I've painted this quite spontaneously (for an exhibition), without any reference or clear idea in the beginning.
Acrylic on cardboard, ca. 63 cm x 43 cm, about 20 hours of work

You can now order prints of this image!

Edit2: I've uploaded the image with my homepage in it, sorry for that, but I have noticed that someone has uploaded one of my paintings on facebook and pretended that he has painted it. So, I'm afraid, I'll have to do this with all my paintings in future...

Classic but beautiful, as they say old but gold
Is this like a reference to Laputa?
Acrylicdreams's avatar
Not intended, although I love that movie!
But the influence for my paintings like this is much older - paintings by Roger Dean.
Oh ok. I haven't seen Laputa in 5 years.

Not if it rains every day heavily! ^^

It would run out faster than rain could fill it. :(

Lets hope people who live there have air travel, if not they're very stuck.

Awesome picture by the way.
