Dan May’s surreal and mysterious forest creatures

I want to make a bet today: I’m sure you cannot dislike the paintings I’m about to share with you. Bet on? Good. Now let me tell you a bit more about them before we will take a look and see if I’m right ;)

Dan May is a fine artist currently living in Northern Michigan. His paintings are surreal and mysterious, and show haunting forests with their dreamy inhabitants. I get a ‘Where The Wild Things Are’-vibe from these forest friends, I love how friendly (and sometimes a bit sad and alone) these creatures look. Another thing that amazes me in Dan’s pieces is the superb detail in the hair. The softness and movement in the hair is really stunning, it makes the paintings feel very much alive. Enjoy!
