Oz 16x 20 acrylic

This is a commission I had for a picture from the Wizard of Oz. I was asked to do this several months ago to be ready for a Nov. birthday gift. The problem with this is I am not that great with painting people just not enough practice. The second is this is a place from some ones imagination. I read the book to get some inspiration and realized it is not quite like the movie. (Shoes were silver not ruby red) After doing several sketches and thinking a lot about it, this one is the one I settled on doing. At first, I was a little afraid that the trees would be cutting the picture in half but it seemed to work out the best.

I like this one, but you already knew that. You should do one with the wicked witch and some flying monkeys.

Will is scared of the flying monkeys. They gave him bad dreams when he was a kid.LOL
