So You Have Come To Visit Me by TheMichaelMacRae So You Have Come To Visit Me by TheMichaelMacRae
In the darkness she knows all. She feels every drop upon waxy leaves as though they were her own skin. She does not exist in these woods as some have mistaken, she is a part of them. This place, as in all places not a quiver nor shiver goes unnoticed. So she whispers this time, not with a command but with a query. With a hushed tone, inaudible to any listening ear. In the mist of night a thing had changed that even she could not foresee. And it left its mark of soiled earth and caustic leaves.

You mean to say photo, not foto. I do not know for certain, but they probably just paint it (most likely digitally). They might use references though. I certainly do.

Nice work! Environmental effects, foreground focal blur, lighting, all wrapped up with floating feet. Sweet! Storytelling with one visual that makes me want to know more. Awesome job!

This is breathtaking (yeah..now imagine 36ooo viewers who stopped breathing in front of your art... and think of all the families who therefore lost someone they loved :D )
But seriously, your painting is beyond criticism anyway and together with the poem this work is an amazingly intense experience to look at and wander through.
And.... is it only me who sees some creature creeping below her feet? Something orange-white shaded... like a snake or something?
Or did your power of imagination just cheered on mine? :)

Hi again, I'm back to take a moment to study this  pic. ^^

This image together with the written poem there, shares an interesting story.
In my personal interpretation of it, I am reminded of a mental battle. This evil entity
floats above the forest, with a sense of being around for as long as the earth had been around.
In the midst of the forest stood a vibrant sprout, of red leaves, which subtly stood out amid the dead trees.
The red little tree, represents life that had been produced after it took root from it's foundation.
The query, "So you have come to visit me?" Prompted me to want to say, "I came to confront you. and declare,
that I will not wither and die like the rest of the trees in this forest. I will stand my ground, and thrive."
The evil entity is not rooted like the red tree, but floats about like a specter that roams about, seeking to devour,
rob, and perhaps even destroy anything that is vibrant. It gives me the notion of something being "a foot" something
is going on in the atmosphere that does not sit right. The floating woman's legs is like a fleeting image that one could barely
get a full view. Discerning eyes are like that. Barely seeing, but knowing she is there, even sensing, that she is in the midst of the
atmosphere.

Well that pretty much concludes my interpretation. Hope you enjoyed the read. ^^
It took me a good moment to really study this image and think about it. This is a pretty deep image
that was very well executed. Nicely done. :)

This is very impressive imagery. I'll be back to share more feedback.
AT the moment, I'm a little too distracted from the tv. I usually take time
to interpret an art work. It's a cool perk I picked up in mid commentary, back
when I first joined DA, and have enjoyed sharing interpretations ever since.
I'll be back to share more later, so I'll just fave this in the meantime. ^^

Found your art after The Mothers was shared on Clive Barker's Facebook page. As soon as I saw this I had to have it! It's so very striking, I love the detail, particularly the rain.
I have just recently had it framed and it now hangs on my wall in Newcastle Australia. I am mesmerised by it.

SHE DIDN'T HANG HERSELF?!

THAT WAS THE ONE THING I THOUGHT I KNEW ABOUT THIS IMAGE, LOLOL

I am going off the idea she hung herself, because that makes more sense here.
