A range of people, both young and old, are literally walking on air between two massive rock formations rising above the land and sea below. The people are crossing in both directions, seemingly oblivious that they are hundreds of feet above the trees below. This is the first painting I've ever done with a brownish sky. It's also one of the first paintings I've done where the size of the people are dwarfed by the enormity of the setting they're in. Yet your eyes are drawn to the people - an old man with a cane, a man pushing a woman in a wheelchair, a younger man with a backpack. Their look is somewhat cartoony which makes for a surreal setting against the dramatic backdrop.
