Back of the North Wind

Some time ago I was reading George MacDonald’s book At the Back of the North Wind.  I was struck by the sensitivity of the book, and I started this picture.  My progress was interrupted by some client work.  Today I took a break from my regular work and endeavored to put enough finish on this piece to post it on my blog.  I still have some work left on it, and I’ll try to present a finished version in time.
