Illustration Friday - Horizon

HAPPY HOLIDAYS and NEW YEAR TO YOU!!

Horizon - my concept is connecting my ongoing series of 'humanature' . I created a abundant growth of the tree which grows from sea/river/water to the horizon. Originally, the tree is upside down like a 'pok choy' and I kept working on it until my wife saw it. She said she liked it to be upside down. Then I turned it to the other way and found out that it should be in this way and I kept building up and adding ingredients to it. I even sticked stamps but they were too much going on and I decided to take them out but you can still see there are marks on the tree. By the way, I like the reflection of the trees which originally I painted as if there was a sky and tree roots from underground to the horizon. Sorry for the confusion - it turns out nice I guess. I did those vertical lines to enhance/exaggerate the ambiguous form of the tree. I use a human face as a metaphor of human and nature relationship which human is only a small portion of the nature.

Hope you like it and give me some comments. Thanks again for all the support of this year's art blogging which I gain so much that I cannot even imagine. Again, 'it is great to be an artist.'

I love those colours, so acidic but so sympathetic, acid drop style colours.
