The Reader's Path

By MorJer
~o~ The Reader's Path ~o~

Prints of this picture are available here:…

I wanted to paint this a few days ago. I already had the sketch, but for some reason ended up doing the Red Riding Hood picture instead. This here was more carefully planned and took me a lot longer. It's definitely one of my more detailed pictures. I even worked in the titles of some of the books I used to love when I was younger.

I have another version with a small glowing fairy hovering over the path, but I was told not to use it. Sometimes I wish I was half as good at drawing characters as I am with scenery :paranoid:

Anyway, enjoy! :)

sadly this art is still being stolen...I see this on FaceBook, as a member of a group has a cellphone case with this art on it. UGH.  They steal from the great artists -_-

My husband bought me a print of this for my birthday. It's utterly amazing! It now hangs beside the door into the 'library' (aka the spare room lined with bookcases).
