This iphone 4 case features a reproduction of my original gouache painting, “Elemental”.
This was so fun to paint. Inspired by Ursula LeGuin’s description of Roke Knoll in A Wizard of Earthsea. I love the idea of an ancient, magical hill whose roots reach deep.
The presence of that hill where many wonders had been worked was heavy, like a weight in the air about them. As they came onto the hillside they thought of how the roots of it were deep, deeper than the sea, reaching down even to the old, blind, secret fires at the world’s core.
Prints of “Elemental” are available here
