Path of Petals by enayla Path of Petals by enayla
Sooo... yes.... weeeelll... I don't think this one is as 'good' as the one I did earlier, but it was fun to do. Tried something new, again, so, anyway.

Snippet of the text meant to go with it:

~

The moss, underneath the touch of her fingertips, was thick, and sticky; when she retracted her trembling digits, it clung to the satin skin. Stubbornly, bitterly; scented in a cloyingly sweet way that became almost overwhelming, as she rubbed her fingertips together.

It smells like blood.

That was her first thought, and it was strong. It nailed itself firmly to the walls of her mind, and lingered there as she turned to rush deeper into the woods. Soft, silky tears streaming down ivory white cheeks.

Pale blossoms clutched to her chest, as if their bridal-veil petals could somehow banish the harsh words she had spoken - and those that had been spoken to her.

Stunning! Been looking for this piece for ages and finally found it. It was one of my favourites years ago, and I still really really like it.

The atmosphere is great and everytime I look at it I feel like it's coming right out of a fairy tale, like Snow White. :)

This art is awesome. Great colors and atmosphere and this lady... I don't know why, but it reminds me a little Snow White, when he got lost in the woods :D

I cant even begin to describe how much I adore this- specially how much I adore HER-

Its a shame you don't have prints enabled for this, though in all honesty I would just add it to my wish list xD

Anyway, you are great!
