A photoshop drawing I did yesterday, a stylized view of my favorite environment in the world. Hope you enjoy. The colors are morning colors. When I taught elementary school, I would walk across the desert from my home to the school (about 4 miles) each morning. Peaceful times to contemplate and think, and most of all, to enjoy nature at its best.

now that's very well done... I thought for a second in thumbnail it to be an actual picture... because I see this every day living in the desert as I do and I love it! Great job :D

Art is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

Simple, pleasant, calm - and interesting. A perfect wallpaper :)
Well done! A lot of your other pictures are more impressive, but at the end of the day, this is the one I prefer on my screen.

I like the good use of the negative and positive space in the scene. With out the birds, it would have not been as good as u have it now.
