Glimpse Of Summer, Linda Bergkvist (2D)

Title: Glimpse Of Summer
Name: Linda Bergkvist
Country: Sweden
Software: Photoshop

I felt I just wanted to share what summer in the cabin is like for me, when walking through the sunlit woods with my cat Azrael. I know this isn't anything I'd usually paint, but I had so much fun doing it (though I've got a cold so bad I honestly don't know why I'm sitting up) that I couldn't help but show it.
I hope you've had a lovely summer, too.
(the part I'm happiest about is that I actually managed to capture my monkey feet, ha ha).
A couple of closer shots:

I can resist everything but temptation.

Really a good work

Beautiful, as always. This seems to capture that sense of innocent joy you get when playing in a forest in summer, thinking about old fairytales (to me, anyways...). And, of course, Azrael is just absolutely adorable in this piece. Fabulous work!

Wonderful work! I have been looking forward to another piece from you. Gorgeous colours, this has a real sense of summer attatched to it. I love the lighting and the shadows. Beautiful!

great work linda as always but this time with more imagination .. I feel unlucky today because my pic directly under your pic .. u know what I mean haha .. I like Azrael face and the grass seems fantastic .. very cool .. 5 stars absolutely

Adorable image with lots of personality. Lovely colors. Something about the lifted paw on the kitten. Could be the leg is too short or maybe too much of the underside of the paw is showing. Don't want to nitpick it is a lovely image.

Delightful, wonderful! Your work is exceptional, Linda, and I always look forward to new pieces by you. And you appear to have very cute "monkey feet" to boot! LOL

Haha Linda! This is so funny and cute... I love it when you do these stylized caricature type paintings (like your one of Azrael in the snow). I especially love Azrael's eye, and the background and lighting are exceptional. One comment or suggestion would be to maybe have your right hand reaching up toward one of the dragonflies. Amazing work though, like always, hehe.

Haha, monkey feet...
It's a sweater!!!

Hi, Linda! I do hope you're feeling better soon. I recognized you and Azrael immediately. These caricatures are delightful! Thanks for sharing your woodland summer. It looks beautiful. Gone are the days when I lived within 20 miles of unapologeticaly untamed forest. I miss them here in this sprawling metroplex hugging our coastal desert. Getting to watch the local deer, otters, mink and hares literally playing was a priceless treasure. Thank you for reminding me of those times.

Lovely work as always Linda. Love the kitty's eyes and the expression on your face. Beautiful. Lovely atmosphere too.

One thing that strikes me as a bit odd is Azrael'a raised fron paw. I just seems a bit off, and doesn't quite make sense to me.

Otherwise totally beautiful piece.
