I would love to have this image in a print. How can I get that?

Love the originality...and the work of course.

like, a daydream fueled by the freshest of barley oats & the smell of fresh grass melting the bonds of the carousel.... ' the call of the wild'

In love with this! New to page. Can you buy prints?

The moment I came across this piece, I immediately fell in love with it! It's beautiful, graceful, and inspired. As I compared this to your older version, I can see so much improvement! There are such elaborate details, and you can see the flow of transition between each horse as it gets further away flawlessly. I also love the contrast between the bright, bold colors of the carousal and the soft, natural tones of the snow. The blur on the outer edges of the piece creates a dreamy look, giving a perfect touch to its theme.

The ONE thing I noticed after studying this piece for a while (I mean... look at it, you should be proud) was that perhaps you could have added the reflections of light from the carousal on the nearby branches and trunk of the tree. Maybe even small highlights on the rocks in the background. A very small detail, but it could have made the transition between the left and right side of the piece just a bit smoother.

Otherwise, I think this is very original and beautiful! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> And congrats on the Daily Deviation. It's well-deserved!

I collect carousels and immediately fell in love with this.
I feel it definitely has a very fantasy atmosphere and beautifully done,
I think it has a wonderful concept and theme also. 
The image fits the title perfectly.
 My concept of this is I believe everyone can relate to the times when a person feel restraints in their life and  feel they are going around in circles not going anywhere and want to break free to change their life for the better.

Thank you so much for accepting my request for this wonderful photo-manipulation to the group.
