"Narnia" Oil Painting (final, I hope!)
O.k. so I should stop saying, "final" when I keep going back to this painting with ONE more idea! But, I do think it's finally finished. I woke up this morning thinking of making snowflakes with a toothbrush and knife (to flick the toothbrush bristles with) and then coming back and putting some larger flakes in. I liked the feel of it and then realized, "uh-oh. The tree branches would have some snow on them..." so went back in there and put some snow on them. Yikes this painting has so many layers to it...
I wanted it to be like it had just started snowing on already unbroken snow. Anyway, I hope it makes for cool thoughts. Maybe this was what Lucy saw when she came out of the wardrobe. Now where is Mr. Tumnus?
