You are one of the few artists that lives today who inspires me most deeply. Your work is always beautiful and so detailed. As well, you use the same medium I adore when working traditionally. Not only do I admire all your work, but see it as a means to learn every time you share a new piece.
I hope to add the Just So Stories to my collection of books soon. :aww:

I like the touches of blue in the tail, it ties in so nicely with the background.

Glorious! :D
That supple blue shading on the kangaroo, the easy motion of both animals, and the lush landscape. Masterwork. :)
