Just finished painting Elixir II, one of my dream dwelling places I could easily live in. There's a vegetable garden, rice fields with a scarecrow (and crows), a red gate (torii), koinobori (flying fish kites) for Yuki, Jesse, and I, geta (Japanese wooden sandals), a lagoon leading out to the ocean (that could be me on the little boat out there), mountains with tall pine trees, and a thatch roofed house with sliding wooden and paper doors. There's no cactus, but nothing's perfect... I painted a scene similar to this before, a color copy of which can be seen here.
