This was a picture for a contest to illustrate a book of dark gothic poetry. The author set the rules as follows... A forest setting (either day or night), a boy around 13 years old hiding behind a tree with a book titled "The Lunacy Machine" in front of him. He is hiding from himself who is looking for him in the woods. Within the picture is a creek or stream flowing from left to right. Also, these images must be in the picture - an owl, an old woman, rocks, roots, your birthday carved on one of the trees. Needless to say, I entered this picture and the author chose me over around 80 other applicants!! So in the near future, look for the dark poetry book called "The Lunacy Machine" in a bookstore near you.
