Silent Ruins by pixeluna ()
A mother she never knew
A friend she will always have.
The only link between the past and the present
is this young woman's courage.
Will she ever succeed in her journey?
Or will she come back empty-handed?
A scene from Lavinia's Tale.
I added some Photoshop brushes to the background but the actual backs don't have those. I left it that way to leave room for Artists to enhance them by adding their own "twinklemacallits" if they wish to.
Thank you for viewing and for all your comments. It's a pleasure to see all the wonderful works that our fellow Artists made. You are all so amazing!

What an entrancing scene, Jenny. One can so get lost in it... so much exquisite detail. The colours just by themselves are soft and inviting. The fairy-mother's touch is as soft as the colours: this is a scene for mothers and daughters everywhere. Beautiful, thoughtful composition, elegantly conceived and beautifully rendered.
Jenny, this is just absolutely breathtaking!!! The interaction of the figures is touching and powerful, and the slight glow you have added makes it even more magical. A masterpiece!! I really do love this package - it is magnificent, and you have added your own special touch here. Thank you and Chuck so much for sharing it! And thanks for the new addition to my art dictionary - twinklemcallits - I LOVE IT! :-D Your twinklemcallits look smashing!
The words that went with those are so moving. You might want to consider using this style in some places when you embelish your story. Now I understand about your backgrounds, and yes, you left us plenty of room for "twinklemacallits" (so great a phrase) while still providing a substantive framework to create our scenes. I wondered about this when I was working on the set and it is nice to see it was deliberate... for your sets are surely screaming for magical embellishment. And now I do not feel bad about beefing up my own as it was deliberate intent to give us latitude. This background certainly seems to have made a particular hit.
