Skyscapes – Reunited


After a long separation (food is scarce in this airborn environment, and the nest must be looked after), the two birds are at last reunited.  How long it will be before circumstance once again pulls them apart, no one can say.  Until then, however, they are together and the sun is shining on them.

There are many question that this image leave unanswered – where do the trees come from, where do they go, how do they get water, what do the birds do for survival, are there any other, flightless animals, are all the islands equally small… Hopefully in time these questions will all be answered.

This is my first proper painting since acquiring my Wacom Intuos3 drawing tablet. It was done largely as an experiment to get know the tool, and to see what I am capable of. Thanks to Fritz for the inspiration for the image.

    …laat my effens dink aan Die Kleine Prinsie se kremtartbome. Sonder die duiwe egter. Hm, en minder rond as Asteroïde B612. Nietemin. Magies.
