I'm not sure if embarking on the bardic course has made me more creative but i like to think it has.

A lot of symbolism :applause:
Three sounds one should treasure:
the whisper of the wind through the leaves
the songs of one's heart
the callings of the universe

It was originally going to be the green man. I incorporated the elements I felt most at the time. I added some overt symbolism when I decided to give it to a friend from school. Though the green mans twirley mustachios made him look a bit like a squid so most people thought he was Cthulhu. The eyes were coloured that way to represent the sun who's fire was warming me through the window. Id been looking for tree wisdom in the spring.

I've had moments or inspiration before but never relating to art. I love how much different acrylic paint works on paper rather than gaming miniatures.
