I can hardly explain this painting. I think the title and the image itself pretty much sums it up. =) I wasn't trying to do anything complex, but I do love to draw trees and dryads and such.

====================
7x10 watercolor and inks on Arches hot pressed paper.

I like how happy it looks. :aww: And how the red of the mushrooms echoes the red of its heart.
