Merry-go-Round: Inspirational Photo Challenge

It's time for another ride on the merry-go-round! Jump on and join a group of 9 artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.
This month topic is: Inspirational Photo Challenge. We take a photo of something that inspires you and show what you make from this as your inspiration.
I took the above photo near my house. It is a very old tree facing the sea. It reminds me of the book "One Hundred Years of Solitude". The paintings for the photo is thus named as "Solitude".
I made two versions of the painting. One is original watercolor and another is computer illustration.
 Order the Original Painting
I like pen and ink drawing with watercolor very much and this is one of the first few of the watercolor paintings with pen and ink. I would like to explore more on this type of painting in future.
 Order the Print
The print allows me to incorporate some flower patters in the grass. I like the effect.
I hope you enjoy reading this post. Please do visit other merry-go-around blogger to find out more about the topic.
