Nursery II (Winter) by Tolkyes Nursery II (Winter) by Tolkyes
Oil on canvas. 22"x30".

A Christmas themed painting to a degree.
It's a 'sequel' to my first "Nursery" painting.

.......Roger Dean meets Thomas Kinkade right here, ladies and gentlemen. Sheesh.
Such a brilliantine glimpse into a connection between the ether above and the frost below.
I can only imagine how breathtaking this would be in a large format print.....or of course, in person.

Got some questions on the brain now that I've taken this picture in...basically about the conception of it.
I've done pieces that turn out as a collage, which are usually spontaneous explorations.
...what I want to know is, how did you go about planning this picture? Did you have a layout in mind, or several, and stuck with one you liked?
Did you have a list of elements to start with, and then planned how and where to "layer" them in the painting?

Just curious about the "Making Of". It's amazing how everything fits together in this.
Clearly you have been working on your craft for a good while.

Woah.... I love how you blend space with earth (or whatever planet this is on....)

Thanks. I've noticed that nebulae are visually similar in structure to certain kinds of glowing fungus, deep sea creatures, trees covered in vines, unusual rock formations and icebergs. I thought it natural to morph them together at times.

Just stunning, I'm in love with your style! The ice structures merging with the nebulae is a stroke of genius. Raw imagination.

Thank you very much! I haven't received that many comments on this painting, especially compared to my first "Nursery" painting. It's much appreciated.
