There is something wonderful beyond those fabulous trees. This is so wonderful and tells such a delicious story. Great perspective. I didn't have a chance to do IF this week, but I did get a chance to look at everyone else's works of wonder. I know that you understand about the snow. It's a little overwhelming, but I know that we need it. It will get some hot this summer and they will be saying we are having a drought or something. I need to say something positive. SNOW IS GOOD!!! he he he he h! Stay warm girly. We are about to get hit one more time.

Perfect for perspective! This reminds me of when I was a kid and my friends and I would run all over the place making up stories and creating mysteries. We were so free back then... beautiful work, Lisa

Thanks Vanessa... there is something wonderful beyond those trees and I love the feeling of freedom/mystery to it. And your visits are always positive, its just that the time has come for Father Winter to go BYE-BYE! =)

Hi Diana-
Funny thing that one of my favorite players is in the NHL plays on Team Canada! Either way I will be happy with the results. =)

I love how we are seeing the backs of the characters and they are walking away from us. I always choose to have the characters facing the viewer (because its easier for me!) but this is so much more dynamic. Lush and beautiful scenery too.
