Such a lonely piece. The boy looks a bit sad like he knows that his creation will soon wash away.

Excellent work I love it.

Lol your welcome. I tend to do my commenting in bulk. I'll go weeks with checking out the new deviations and then suddenly decide to go thru all of them lol.

You are an amazing artist. I've been watching you for close to 2 years now and I love most of your pieces. I even got the calender lol. When I get up enough cash to start buying some art I intend on odering some prints. Keep up the good work:)

i really like it but i think that the colors are too local,
you should mix the blue of the sky a bit with the ground.

when you paint sky you put so many cool colors, treat it the same..

This is a wonderful piece. It reminds me of Roland of Gilead, The Gunslinger. Young Roland building the tower the he one day will pursue. Just the faintest outline of the Dark Tower would be perfect, or can I, oh so barely, see it now?

Tracks in the sand look like the tracks the moving rocks leave in Death Valley, The Death Valley Race Track.

Cool composition, beautiful use of colors!

I love your work. The atmosphere, the colours, the composition and the story behind (whether told or not) is simply wonderful. In this piece as in your others.

I'm glad you're back to posting on DA!
