The Wishing Tree by jjpeabody The Wishing Tree by jjpeabody
You visit the tree and tie a ribbon on a branch. When the ribbon falls off the tree, the stream takes your wish away so it can be granted. It passes through the mountains of hopes and dreams. Flows easily past the hills of doubt and sadness. Through the plains of hard work and dedication. It finally emerges to the ocean of life where your wish is granted :)

It's Bio-degradable of course ;)

The landscape in this picture is really beautiful, especially because of the flourished tree and the white bird. The chromatic and the shading is very good. The way light comes from the left of the drawing and falls on the ground and on the feather of the bird... It looks amazing.

Likewise, the wind and the light which comes from the left create a special athmosphere, it feels almost like being there.

The only observation I can make is to be carefull and pay equal attention when drawing each part of the piece. For example, the vegetation is rich in details but the steps nearby the tree aren't.
What do you think?

Love your story of this art. Just knowing that all those ribbons are wishes that are being carried away and going through trials and tribulations but victorious in the end.

Hi Lena,

I'm sorry I didn't see this before, but I'm okay with you featuring the art on websites that don't violate DA's etiquette [link] and that you link back to me.

Any promotion would be great and I appreciate the feature. Thanks for asking :)
