Beyond the fireplace by rontufox Beyond the fireplace by rontufox
Based heavily on this cool stained glass lamp: [link]

For my grandpa.
The earliest memory of my grandparents is ingrained in the fireplace cover my grandpa made out of stained glass. I remember being enthralled by the never-ending impressionistic scene he created, and would admire it even when the fire wasn't burning.

I thought this looks like stained glass, and indeed. It's rather fascinating to see how a lamp inspired this beautiful illustration.

Oh lovely, love the mix of afternoon/night feel it gives... I like that how you can make such beautiful pieces with simple lines, I mean it's not overly complicated, it's simple but so well done! :D Nice scene indeed!

I didn't think of this in terms of warm or cool while I was making it :o Oops! But I'm glad you think it feels warm rather than cool. It's a night scenertf5fdffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff (that was my cat) it's a night scene but my intention was to convey memories of love, admiration, and mystery.

Yes. I didn't really think about it, but those are the exact vibes I'm getting from this picture, especially admiration and mystery. :)

I'm still giggling at your cat's input!:XD:
