This was painted for school.

I got the idea from the lyrics of the beautiful song 'Back to You' by Brett Anderson and Fred Ball:

And when the pigs fly
And when the planets die
That's when I come back, when I come back to you
And when the sun cools
And when the stars fall
That's when I come back, when I come back to you
And when the war machines
Rust eternally
That's when I come back, when I come back to you
And when your heart bleeds
For a love that's dead like me
That's when I come back, when I come back to you...

This one has a monumental, almost epic feel to it. Ruined buildings, giant machines... grass and flowers creeping back over it all. Could it be a possible future for Earth? Very well done on general mood and atmosphere.
