This looks like a wonderful place. Reminds me of Hobbits I wonder if they are related goblins and hobbits. Wonderful job on the beautiful land.

Artist Statement
for Annika Volkens
Annika VolkensI live in the north of Germany, 150 km far from hamburg. I'm a self taught artist and 20 years old, now. My art tries to show people the beautiful side of life. I want, that people, who are watching my paintings feel peace inside themselves.

At the moment, I'm studying art history and musicscience in Kiel. Maybe I will study art later on.
Added this dark background to the previous painting, now wish I hadn't! So please would you suggest anything I could do now to improve it again, or is it...
