Well... it's a fairy in front of a castle with a full moon behind it. Not much more to say I'm afraid. Done with gouache.

this picture makes me go ........ehfglIWYEGTLLIUGliuzrgzu which i expect is a good thing when there is no one else in the room. i think i have been there but i can't really remeber a whole lot about my past lives except the time when i was a spanish gypsy. idon't think they had places like that in spain.

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: "Whoah. I don't think I've ever made anyone make that noise before *grins* that has to be a good thing! And no, I don't believe they had those places in Spain. Actually, I don't know where they had places like this... but if you ever figure it out, tell me so I can move in."

nice work. What's the fairy thinking about?

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: ""I should go up there, it's about to rain... but I can't, they'll never except me back... not now... not ever." Hell, I don't know 2"

You know what the castle and the moon make me think of? Has anyone ever played Legend of Dragoon? Well, it remindds me of Hellena prison. I mean, to me, the castle looks sort of dark and... umm... stuff, and the fairy doesn't exactly look thrilled to be where she is... Catch my drift?

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: "Hmm... no, I've never played it... anyone else?"

Really cool one, Stormy. Melikes it. The huge moon is just... I dunno, something. It's very stylish. The castle reminds me of some impressionist landscapes by Cezanne and Pisarro.

If there's any place they have places like that, I'd bet it's Transsylvania.

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: "OOh, did you hear that everyone! I'm being compared to great artists! 1
Okay, next stop Transsylvania! I have this picture blue-tacked onto my wall... I'm not sure about it's artistic brilliance, but I'd do anything to live there! Am very happy you like."

I like the solid bold colors. The composition and lighting ar well balanced this really is a joy to observe.

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: "I tend towards solid colours when I'm using gouache... I guess I just like the consistancy."

Wowowowowow! It has such a specific mood. Totally draws you in and leaves you stunned. I love the style of shading. Huge thumbs up.

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: "Well, I'm impressed you can feel something like that from one of my pieces."

The glow the moon gives off in your picture is extraordinary, very deep and meaningful.

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: "Thankyou!"

Wow! That moon and glow off it looks very Van Gogh-ish.
An impressive piece.

:-) S. J. 'Stormy' O'Connor replies: "Thanks!"
