Description This painting was inspired by a story I wrote about an ancient tree, seeded by the stars and fond of ravens, that tells the tale of a wizard who loses what is most dear to him and thereby learns the true nature of his art. Called 'The Om Tree,' this story appears in Tales of the Talisman, 7-3.
F.T. McKinstry, New England Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement I am a fantasy author who loves to paint. Writing and painting work together nicely; one inspires me to do the other. Endlessly fascinated by woods, gardens, birds, wild animals, the sun, moon and stars, I like to put to canvas, or in words, inner landscapes done in rich colors and a mysterious feel inspired by fairy tales, myth, legend and imagination.
