This is a very beautiful piece. I adore the colors that you chose; blues and greens for her, infused with a little purple, to represent the sea, oranges, pinks, peaches, and reds for him to symbolize the land and sky. I ache seeing their sadness in an impossible love. I love your style as well! Amazing work!

Where will they live? Where the sea and land meet of course... :aww:

"By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea.
You and me, you and me, oh how happy we'll be...":boogie:

I love your picture. Your interpretation is just so wonderful. The concept is so simple and perfect.
Lovely, just lovely.

I know where they can live: The bird in a nest on the bank of a pond and the fish in a bromeliad (not sure I spelled that right) flower.
