Great colors, technique, composition...and yeah, one of the other commentators is right- this could be a Roger Dean-esque 70's album cover.

That is so pretty, like doorways to other worlds. And that broken tree in the center seems so sad. Awesome job!

It looks like something you'd see after eating a psychoactive bracket fungus.

This is a wonderful painting. A personal and imaginative 'mindscape'. I can tell that it is spontaneous as well, atleast to the extent that you did not have to rely on photography.

My, couldn't agree more!:D
Looks like a 70s vinyl disk cover or sth...
But it's really interesting and the colours binding so greatly together, too:D

Glad you agree! Yeah, There was some really intricate and crazy-imaginative science fiction art in the 70's.
