on the swing by Bakenius on the swing by Bakenius
The wonders of PaintBBS.

I made this out of a request of someone, it turned out way different than I or anyone else expected. In a good way ofcourse :)

Okay, I know the swing this way isn't possible by known pysical laws, but that's not the point. ;)

It has a very Alice-in-Wonderland feel about it, and the type of artwork where physical laws are suspended (M.C. Escher, for example) are often the most intriguing.

This piece blends an innocent girl reading on a swing with a somewhat more sinister background in the deep shadows. Her presence at that precise location marks the threshold between realities (as I interpret it, of course), with flowers and a stone path on this side and the untended wilder forest beyond, making the impossible swing *very* possible.
