Had to revisit this one to pick it apart more bc of its beauty..Your paintbrush swirled and dabbed gorgeous images...I can smell the cotton candy as well as the lilacs...maybe I will just scare the deer away and go right into this cottage. :) gwendolen

Beautiful scene, Andrea. By the way, the raccoon eventually jumped out and we swam out and got our boat...haha

Your vision shines into my soul with pastel scenery. With magic sky's that paint the eyes on earthly greenery. A passive glance into a world beyond an average day. Reminding us that when we look, we now know why we pray.

Fantatic images in this work. Reminds me of the Burl Ives tune, "The Big Rock Candy Mountain". Peace & Love Matthew Anish
