I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    lovely, haunting work as usual
    (and you just know you’re gonna have to ‘clean up’ after him when you look at him don’t you?!..) lol!…
    love those butterflies and the way the light seems to actually come from around her (who’s already in the cave) and not from him (who’s presumably come from the outside) – brilliantly portrayed …beautiful..xx chtirali

  • Thank you Chitrali, glad you like. Yep, I think you’re right Barbarians always need a lot of cleaing up… LOL xo

    What a great mysterious story this is! Love the light, just enough to reveal the needed details!

  • Thank you so much. :-) It took forever to get the lighting right and RB screwed it up a bit AGAIN with it’s new fancy loader. :-(
