Yes. This does feel perfect, I agree with epiphytes. It is so familiar. I can sense what the woman in the piece is doing as if I'm there- although I don't know if what I sense is the same as what I intended. It reminds me of something very very specific: entering a trance in which the body and spirit are parallel, in equilibrium and then extending the "aura" or "merkabah" further and further out into the forest, connecting and attaching to all the life forms around it. This creates a feeling of intense appreciation, deep peace and acceptance. When done right, the animals and plants can and will communicate. They will land on you and reveal themselves to you. I've had this experience a few times and it's one of the best feelings in the world. This picture reminds me of that.

This is literally perfect. I love the combination of soft-wash shading and strong, contrasting lines. The trees/plant life look incredible and the whole scene is incredibly captivating.
