Have you ever walked through a birch forest, with a green blanket of ferns at your feet? Have you stood and wondered how something so simple and beautiful could exist on this earth?

For me, there's no place more magical or spiritual.

nice color and style. I have walked through a birch forest. You've captured that magical feeling here.
I have a poplar forest in my back yard and it also feels much like your creation.

I acutally prefer pine forests with thick cushiony moss. Area difference I suppose. The feeling is the same, though, all full of vibrant rich life.

haha if you don't mind ticks and swamp, the walk through the wetlands here is just as green and magical, if not...stinky and somewhat mushyXD We should don some boots and go swamp hopping sometime:)

You've put alot of what you love in this image and it really shows. You've always had a knack for this type of lovely detailed imagery.

With your love of thunderstorms, I'd be curious to see what your take on a storm angel spirit might be.

Great work hon.:)

Yeah, but the forests I'm talking about are the ones with ferns on the ground and white birches all around. Generally you don't get that in swamp-like areas (you get green, but not the birch/fern forests like this :D )

Hmm, I don't know if I'd be able to properly capture a thunderstorm spirit.

eheh true enough, though the swamps are still quite beautiful:) If we do it, I will have to show you where the frogs lay their eggs. Mmm we had alot of birch tree forests in North Carolina where I grew up. It's a really lovely place.

Mmm with a thunderstorm, I think billowing gray cloth, electric blues, whites, lots of things. Maybe I should try it myselfXD

Ah so many projects. *stops distracting self*XD

Wooooooow! I've got more pines than birches where I live, but we've still got plenty of ferns :D

Vivid greens, quite compelling to see on a hot early-Summer day. She's focusing her whole body on her contemplation.

Are her wings, I wonder, meant to have green feathers, or green ferns-in-the-form-of-feathers?

Originally I was aiming for fern-feathers, but they're a bit more feather-like than fern-like. :)
