The Secret Garden by emla The Secret Garden by emla
This is a mock cover for "The Secret Garden." And now for a message that fortunately most people don't need and I wish I didn't feel like I have to say this:

THIS IMAGE IS NOT FREE CLIP ART. Do not use without permission. Commercial violations will be pursued.
I only feel the need to post this notice on this painting because for some reason it really gets around the internet with no credit given, no permission asked and often not even so much as a basic credit. If you want to use this image contact me about licensing it legally at emma@inklingart.com

As a refresher, here is the sketch and line art from early 2010: oddsketch.blogspot.com/2010/02…

What a wonderful illustration! I'm working on a program guide and member directory for a small garden club. Would you give permission to use it on the cover? It would be published as a PDF and issued to members only (about 90 people). Thank you.

I really like the composition and the simple, patterned effect of the leaves, and how it looks like the light is coming from the keyhole. I'm going to use this as my desktop wallpaper, if that's all right with you.

Oh now this is perfect.  Even without any typography, this says "The Secret Garden" all over it.

I love how the light comes out of the keyhole, the rich greens and pretty much everything about it - it would make a perfect cover for "The Secret Garden" :heart:

Thanks! I did have to walk away from this one for a while at one point - something I like to do when deadlines aren't pressing me too hard. I like to have at least a couple of things in the works at any one time, because that way if I'm feeling bored/frustrated with one, I can switch off to the other and not suffer that "I'm-sick-of-this-just-finish-it"-itis. :)
