Daily Deviation

Given 2008-02-13
The Encaustic style that ~paulrichardjames used when making Wildwood makes for a wonderfully gritty piece with a unique texture. I'm always excited to see what people come up with when they think outside of the box. ( Suggested by brennenxr and Featured by oilsoaked )

This is among my top favorite paintings ever. I wish I could buy it. I'm sure I commented before with my other accounts since I'm migrating my favorites over, but every time I see it I fall in love with it all over again and I can't resist saying how wonderful it is one more time.

This is beautiful.
It feels very delicate and intimate, and has a sort of classical painting feel to it (perhaps due to the figures poses) which lends it almost a fine art feeling.
Then the blue branches over her body add another intricate element... I really love this scene that you've captured.

Gorgeous, makes me think of making love in forests and Greek gods and all sorts of nice, peaceful, romantic things. I love the colors, and the softness and fluidity of their gestures, particularly the whiteness of the slightly blurred hand, it bears a lot of feeling, I think. Wonderful work.

Amazing...this is one of the few works that made me speechless
It's soft and strong, and desire and pure love
it's a kiss and a caress and a hug
it's possession and sharing and...much more :)

this is just my interpretation
Love it
