    Beautiful! There is so much feeling in this – the loneliness of the lone soul that is so small. The blood-red element seems so violent. Amazing piece.

  • Thanks Pixie, we all feeling melancholy and long to go back to the lonely feelings, cuddle up ourselves in it.

    evocative Tokiko, gives me a funny lonely feeling in the pit of a my beautiful and lonely

  • Thanks donna, that is exactly what I want you to feel. I was too comfortable and happy to express the feelings though. Red and foliage contradicted that kind of mood:D

    Wow this is powerful. “In the valley of the city” is a new thought for me, but a very correct way to see it. The colors wonderful…

  • Thanks rjcolby. Glad you like it. I try to find the words, valley, the place surrendered by the hill reffered to it in the city. We say valley of the high rising or brick wall but they don’t sound poetic:D
    How would you say, I always wanted to know?
