The original canvas measures 60 x 48 inches. It is a painting that you feel you can almost walk into.
The forest nymph feels protected in her tree as the Strawberry Moon rises into a magical summer sky.
One of my favorite genres of music is classical. Particularly symphonies and fantasias. I find them very inspiring and powerful.
There are some pieces of music that really provoke emotions and mental images when I close my eyes to listen.
This painting was also influenced from reading ancient mythology in relation to comets.
Comet Dreamer Voyage is a celestial fantasy incorporating the ancient mythology of comets, the beauty of a robed spiritual goddess, soaring through heavenly skies among shooting stars, colorful space and sparkling diamonds, flowing through her long golden hair.
One of my favorite places to visit when I was a kid, was Slapton Sands at Torcross. The car ride would take over an hour, passing through several quaint villages, across stone bridges and through miles of winding tree covered narrow lanes before getting my first glimpse of the beckoning sparkling blue ocean peaking through the curved landscape in the distance.
“It was a magical feeling”.
After visiting one of my favorite places on the California coast where the Eucalyptus trees grow, I decided to incorporate those trees into a fantasy beach scene.
I love the smell of these trees and the sounds they make when the breeze blows through them. Their flaking colorful bark alone provides a good enough reason to paint them.
In this painting, the trees cast contrasting shadows on the sandy trail which opens up to a mystery beach.
