I thought the title was inspired from the film Legend where the unicorn's horns are described as 'antennas to heaven'. But I was wrong. :)

Lovely piece.

Brilliant work miss. I love that you weren't afraid to paint open space; a lot of artists don't know where to stop with a piece and end up putting too much or too little, you've accomplished that perfect medium. The bird adds just the right amount of eye relief. :)

Well, thats a really moody piece of work. Pure climate. That seagull adds something that prevents the picture from turning to abstract for common understanding; I think its a great touch. As for the landscape, I like to think its a beach as seen from above :D

Thankyou so much for your lovely comment. I've never looked at it as you've described with the overhead view of a beach - but I like it.

Antenna's To Heaven, the name makes me think of Godspeed You!'s album 'Raise Yr Fist High Like Antennas in The Sky' (or something like that)

This is such a powereful piece. The contrast of the dark naveys and bright ornages/reds is smooth and well done. And the lone bird, like a sentinel guarding the skies. Breathtaking. :heart:

Who much you get for it? :iconteheplz:
