Open Door

This is as close to pure fantasy as I usually get. This is an image that popped into my eyes after reading a novel by Charles deLint, one of my favorite authors. One of the minor characters in the story was a very large woman of the forest, who sometimes had the function of a guide of sorts. I am posting this for Illustration Friday's topic of the week, wide.

Gorgeous! I love her face -- especially her eyes.

This is a very magical image. I love Charles de Lint books, also, he paints with words. I'm reading Waifs & Strays, now. Great job!

Oh my gosh, your painting is wonderful! I was thrilled when I clicked on it and could see it big and better detail.
