This peice is very dynamic but yet it doesn't seem too busy because all the elements are nearly perfect in blending together in thier concepts. Well done with the sheep along the wall all the shading and fading in each area is just right. There are small but important things that don't seem to fit in this peice that take away from it only slightly. First is the chair it is the most out of place. It seems too new too white. The reason for this is the faded worn window on the other wall they just don't match up. Next is the iris of the eye peeking in the window. The color is not realistic, I do not know if you chose this color to emphasize the blue of the sky colored walls but it is too dark....I would originally think it may have been a contact lens but even in that case it is still too dark. Lastly is the base of the tree. It does not seem large enough to hold/support a upper portion of a tree that large and it almost needs to push past the 'corner' of the wall to give it the 'room' realistic perspective. With all this said this is a very original and well thought out peice. Fantastically done.
What do you think?

hi ackeibler.. I am a lyricist and a writer of poetry, and i was wondering if i could use your image to illustrate one of my songs called Too Afraid To Fight My Sleep, Too Ashamed To Count The Sheep? I am wanting to post it onto my own personal poetry website, and i will give you credit for the illustration, and watermark it with your permission. please let me know when u get a chance.. i really feel this picture illustrates my song perfectly. Thanks so much. G
