This picture is sooo cute! It could be the start of a fairytale, I can almost see how the door opens and the hero of the story comes out in life to begin his adventures in Wonderland Children's Land ... a moving story with many ups and downs of a being that is unlike any other. It is to be seen in this story how it masters its own challenges, and in the end he gets the love and respect of the whole forest-society.
Lovingly did you do this, this is an image that immediately triggers associations. I can believe instantly again that under the grass exists a very own little invisible society. Thank you for this wonderful inspiration my Dear :hug:

I love this so much! The flowers, gorgeous flowers, so many pretty flowers. It's just how I always picture my mum wants our house to look, though we never quite manage it. Perhaps because we aren't a flying mouse with an apple for a house? Magnificent job.

How cute Brandy! I love the door and windows, they seem like just the right choice for this apple. Nice reflection, though I do hope the mouse likes having water at its front door. :D

Well done! I love how this came together and how you were able to do the reflection in the water of the apple! I also really love the glowing dragonflies as they add something magical to the piece. The only suggestion I have is to make a sidewalk or bridge to the side of the door. When they come out of the house they will be going right into the water. Just something to think about. Overall, I think you did an excellent job of blending all your stock together!

Okay, I have saved this critique for last... I'm not sure I can put my finger on why. There are a couple of other entries that I decided early on I liked best. But the more I look at this the more I like it.

To start with your color palette is amazing. The slightly faded / muted colors intrigue me. Next you have mastered something that I wasn't sure anyone could do to my satisfaction - the blending of photorealistic and hand drawn elements. Finally the reflective nature of the water was handled beautifully!

The only thing I wonder about is what kind of occupant the house has... apparently they consider a pond an appropriate sidewalk. ;)

I think the biggest thing this entry has going for it is subtlety. The entire picture is not evident when you first see it. This is one of those artworks that must be contemplated to be fully appreciated. Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing. :love:

Ok wow ! Thank you so much . The only answer I can give as to what kind of critter lives her is "one that can fly" flying mice of faeries. :giggle:

This is such a cute house. I like the curved lines. The reflection in the pond is great.
Great job on all the details you made into the image.
One question, is the mouse mentioned a watermouse? because the door is on the waterside ;)

HA ! that seems to be the popular question..my answer is a flying mouse. or a faerie ...

Lovely work! I particularly notice how well you've shown the movement of water and reflection of imagery above in your little pond. All the flowers-very nice. I don't think I have any thing to add to improve upon this. BRAVA!

In my mind...the mouse has wings.I almost put my little flying mouse in the picture , but it took away from the landscape I'd created. Thank you for your comment !
