Woah! What happened to the big house of yarn attraction?!

It hasn't been built yet? Or perhaps it's now only and overgrown ruin of its former self? Your guess is as good as mine!

All in a day's work! Seriously, I could write a book about mysterious objects... in fact, I have one planned.

This is absolutely lovely--the atmosphere and contrast between the yarn and greenery (and yet the cohesiveness of the piece) are amazing! :D Thanks for sharing! :)

Just a simple palette of complimentary colors! Blue-green/Red is my go-to combo.

I can't help it that the first thing that crossed my mind after looking at this was: my god that person is a genius; I wish I had thought of that. So do allow me to express my opinion about you: you must have one of the most upsidedown ways of thinking but I absolutely love it ! I wish I could give you an award for it.

For me the biggest sence is the nonsence. it's so much more eye-popping, jaw-dropping, basicly it's just much more interesting. So artists like you do enjoy me in a way few can. If you make a book with your illustrations in it, let me know, then I will buy one to show it to my kids later, so maybe they would get inspired by it aswell. In any way, you inspire me enormously. If I was wearing a bowler hat, I would take it of for you and make a big bow.

I confess, when it comes to design, this is one of my favorites too! I tried to make something with a simple composition, clear values, implicit color contrast. I hope I succeeded!

I really like this piece. I am really curious as to what your medium is? I wish I had some critique for you, but the piece is working really well. The atmospheric perspective is wonderful. Though personally I would put a bit more red on the woman and dog so the ball of yarn isn't so isolated; however, if that's what you're going for- then by all means.

I work over gouache with pastel and colored pencil--I was trying to make a gradual transition from warm to cool (yarn > dog > lady), but the dog could be pushed further to the middle. My girlfriend said it looked like a zombie-dog. If I ever happen to explore the image again, I will take this into account! Thanks so much for your comments!
