I feel like the only person who knows what this is from! I love your rendition of Ole Lukoje's room! His umbrellas are exactly as I'd always imagined them, and the Fairy Tale books in the background are a nice touch. My only critique is that you could have used Fairy Tales like "The Little Mermaid" and "The Ugly Duckling" instead of "Hansel and Gretel" and "Jack and the Beanstalk" since they were written by Hans Christian Andersen (who, for those who don't know, wrote the story of Ole Lukoje - the "Sandman".) Even so, this is a fine piece with a beautiful balance of color, a rich, realistic texture, and soft, warm lighting that makes you feel as though you could just walk right in!
This piece is so warm and dreamy! The viewer's eyes are brought all around to the many wonderful details. But we are never overwhelmed. The pages of the books are well-worn, the tiny ladder, and the two different umbrellas all suggest a world any child or adult could happily get lost in.
I am very happy you were recognized in the Daily Devs, otherwise I might not have seen this magic.
