~o~ Magic Gateway ~o~

This was really easy and fast to paint, mostly because I recycled most of the background from one of my older pics:…

At first all I did was play around with different color scemes, then added some stuff here and there and just kept on painting until it looked like this. I wanted to make it look kind of dreamy. I'll probably fool around with it some more some other time.

If you're interested in seeing the opposite side of the gateway, then click here: :thumb122170619: ;)

Full view please!

Jerry :)

The imagination of a child. Oh, the dreams we could have if we had the same kind of wonder!

I find this image very interesting as a little girl I used to picture something very similar in my head.

Love this one too. The place I bought my prints from had both this one and "The Gateway"; I preferred this one because of the additional contrast -- and because the addition of the girl adds a story element to it. I love that you've also done the reverse image, "Two Sides to Every Story" -- and if they had had *that* in the shop, I'd *so* be looking for somewhere to hang them both on opposite sides of the same wall... :-)

I recently found this piece and i must say its so mystical and magical you just want to hop in and explore. :D I just now noticed the reverse side. Great art, wished i could make something so spectacular. i am pretty much just an imvu art person right now but art like this makes me want to learn as much as possible. Thanks for the inspiration.

An inspiring moving piece of artwork that boasts of a majesty worthy of Tolkien and Lewis. Definitely worth a fave and now I can only wonder what adventures the little girl will partake of in the new land. Will it be brighter and better than her seemingly dull and dreary existence in her stormy gloomy world? Or will it be a secret evil in a world that appears, at first glance, like a paradise? Will she get tricked into a worse fate than her previous life? Or will things get better? I can only guess but what I know is that this picture is beautiful and stunning and definitely deserves a fave.

Wrapped up in one word: EPIC!!!
