From the Artist:
Young Boy Good lived on top of a mountain surrounded by sea. He looked to the dark valley below but was afraid to go down there. The rocks were craggy and slippery, the ravines deep dangerous hiding places for thieves, and poisonous snakes lurked in the grass ready to strike.

To read the rest of this story go here and ask yourself: Did the story inspire the painting, or was it the other way around? You judge.

    You came through with your usual luscious colors, Bee. I think the story could have easily arisen from the painting. It speaks volumes.

    we walk this earth sometimes with an alien approach love the story behind

    the use of the word alien means; not of this world–removed from it and seeing it through a wider awareness of what we have been given from above in Mother Earth.
