At the start of the new calendar year, I always make sure that the first painting, be it digital or acrylic, I create, be a piece for me. A personal illustration that derives from no commission. This piece, called The Great Portal Tree, is the first creation of 2012 and comes from a world I like to visit often with my personal work. Its narrative relevance to future novels I plan to write, is pretty important and as such, I like to conceptually depict such places and write a little info about them.
If you click HERE, you can read what this tree is and where it is a portal too.
