Please enjoy my newest fantasy themed artwork Unicorn Sighting.
As you hike through the forest along a lazy river that winds it’s way between the trees, a mist rises. It becomes difficult to see too far and the rays of the sun play tricks as they break through the canopy of leaves. From the other side of the river you hear a sound. Scanning the far shore of the river, you see an animal emerge from the fog. At first, you think it’s a white horse, but this is a strange place to see a horse without a rider. The you notice the horn on its head! What you see is the legendary creature, the unicorn. What should be myth and fantasy now appears before you. It looks at you, its mane and tail drifting in the breeze. A moment later, it turns and gallops away into the mist. It’s a scene you won’t soon forget.
This is my second work to feature a unicorn and fits in both my fantasy and equestrian themed art collections. It was inspired by my hikes along similar rivers throughout the Southeastern U.S. where rivers often wind their ways through dense forests.
Autumn leaves cover the surface of a board walk that cuts through a sun lit forest. It’s late and the afternoon and the low sun casts shadows across the hiking trail. The small trees that line the path arch over the wooden walkway with golden leaves that they seem reluctant to surrender to the fall.
This is an impressionist styled photograph of a hiking area of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area at Johnson Ferry in north Atlanta. Taken in the fall of 2017 late on a Saturday afternoon, I’ve done a ton of post-processing using Topaz Studio with the Impression plugin to give it that Monet/Renoir look.
