  • please tell us more about the tale and the Tree!

    10 years ago

  • There was a drought through the land and food was scarce. There was a very tall tree that was bountiful with many colorful fruits that the animals of the land (inc. a gazelle, elephant and tortoise) long for. They try to reach the fruit, but can't, so the tortoise explains to them that the only way they will be able to reach the branches is the know the name of the tree, and they must go the the owner of the tree, King Lion and he will tell them the name of the tree.

  • The gazelle, volunteers to go first, since she is the fastest and can get back quickly with the name of the tree so they can all eat. But she forgets the name on the way back. The elephant volunteers next, since he has such a great memory, but also forgets. Finally, the tortoise volunteers to go; maybe the least likely of the bunch to succeed at the task (he's the slowest, but the key is he is humble and determined).

    10 years ago

  • After visiting the King Lion, he returns to tell all the animals the name of the tree, Ungalli. They all call out "The name of the tree is Ungalli" and the branches of the tree bend down so that the animals can eat and the animals are saved.

  • this is lovely. Are you using tradional media and then scanning it?

    10 years ago

  • Thanks Stephen! I'm using mixed media - creating a layering effect by using watercolors in the background and acrylics in the foreground to emphasize/highlight certain areas. Photographed since it measures: 20" x 30"

  • I used to draw rooms from the house I grew up in from memory. This reminds me of that. I thought the stack of boxes and chair together were a figure in thumbnail view. The door knob is emphasized, and communicates something behavioral.

  • Thanks so much...I love this painting very much (even though I've had a range of critiques, ranging from very good to very bad). Sometimes though, those are actually the pieces I hold closest to me. I appreciate your input and feedback...and it's valued very much. Thank you Darius!

  • Thanks Darius...that's exactly what I wanted the viewer to feel. Your comments are greatly appreciated and valued! I appreciate the time you took to review and critique my work. Thanks again!

  • I painted this semi-abstract painting on site in a boiler room in the middle of winter. I really wanted to convey exactly what you mentioned...and wanted to show how the colors worked together, even though so different in some/many ways. Side Note: Spending about a week on-site in a boiler room has a strange effect on a person, and maybe it is conveyed someway in this painting --I hope so anyways :) ). Thanks so very much for taking the time to look at and comment on this painting!

  • Have you illustrated this story into a series of illustrations? It would look amazing rendered in this style.

  • Wow..no I haven't...but what a great idea! I may need to possibly do this in the future...it would be an awesome piece individually framed, but grouped together on the wall :)
