Mercury by kuschelirmel Mercury by kuschelirmel
Mercury was the messenger of the Roman gods. The wings on his helmet and sandals allowed him to travel very quickly to wherever a god might send him. He was the god of travellers and tradesmen.

The idea to this was a strange one... I was thinking "what could I do next?... should probably steer clear of butterflies and flowers, I use these so much" And then I thought "but why exactly should I not use a butterfly, when I love that pic?!"
Then I saw some wonderful canvas textures at *nighty-stock and the rest is a blur :giggle:

Stock used: *nighty-stock, sxc.hu and my own.

Edit: there's a walkthrough available over at my stock account - it can be found here [link] in case you're interested.

I wish I could 'blur' like that! What a lovely piece of artwork. Love the colors, the contrasts, the textures. You're amazing.

I am really drawn to this piece. I think it has a lot to do with the colors being so warm, but I have to ask...why Mercury?
