Wonderful!!!! This reminds me of something you'd find in a calendar. One of those pictures that is so beautiful you think no one could have actually done it by themselves. Amazing!!! Yes, wonderful!

So I get the first comment. Do I get to dance now?

*Dances around the room as she slips picture under shirt. Heads for the door. XD

The trees remind me of old 'Yes' album covers (showing age here) and for the life of me I can not remember his name....off for a Google search after a dance with Princess Jasmine.

2 Brad L. Greek replies: "Thanx for your comments Joe, I know the band ..not sure of the album cover though LOL I put music on for you and Jasmine to dance by...some band called "YES" LOL Brad"

Hm. Once I wrote a story about the warrior coming back home from a war. Of course now it seems to be a thick book, but I surely remember how I came to the idea.
I felt something like this. I felt like a man heading home knowing it's useless. Knowing he needs steel, blood, shieks, and so on. But I couldn't find right colours (exept black&red) to paint these feeling. And you could...

2 Brad L. Greek replies: "Thank you Selena for sharing your comments. If I could only write. I felt that the pink was more passive, depicting that the warrior is worn from battle and the journey home. And the homeland is peaceful. Brad"

I like the two trees on the side which make point out the warrior in the middle a bit more. The detail of the castle suits just perfectly... Great picture, great colours, really... Wow2!!!
