I had these four small canvases sitting around for a while, periodically starting but not really liking where things were going.  The idea for this began while sketching at a bar. At first it was muses, then dryads and nyads, but the image became more abstract. A forrest for the earth, red flames for fire, blue water, cloudy whites for wind. The elements are supported by a pillar surrounded by a small crowd of humanity. Above branching heavens and sun.
