Just have to add some more depth with the rye, make the sky a bit darker and more dangerous-looking, and add in the main character (possibly my client’s father, in this case), on the cliff. Until then, here’s what it looks like right now!

I haven’t read the book, but I really like the way your painting captures a changing Earth and the panic that may evoke. In an age of climate change awareness, your painting has an ominous feel… Great.
Wow, I hadn’t thought of it in terms of it’s relation to climate change, but I like your analogy. I actually made the sky darker and have been delayed in posting the final photos of the painting, but I should have them up within a few days. Thanks for offering your interpretation!!
I love that book and I love your painting too!
Thank you! If you check back in 5 or 6 days I’ll probably have the completed picture of the painting posted.
You’ve done it! I know exactly what it refers to when I see it.
That’s great! Thanks
That is looking really good. I had an image of green grass which very close to my vantage point when I read that book in high school. Maybe I’ll try to put my version on the canvass too.
Interesting. If you make a version of yours, I’d love to see it!
