The world from above

Slowly and sometimes painfully my project is coming along. The biggest joy about the whole thing now is seeing all my paintings together. It´s like they´ve finally reunited! I´ve been working on most of them for a long time now and usually I´m working on all of them at once. I took seven of my paintings to a photographer the other day and I´m very pleased with the results, he did a great job.

This painting is of the girl in my story on an airplane for the first time. The world really looks differently from above. Looking out the window of an airplane the girl sees patchworks of colorful fields and cozy, puffy clouds...
