Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The result of this final image reminded me of 'Hope' by George Frederic Watts, a painting of a hunched and blindfolded girl who sits atop a globe with one last opportunity to strike a string that would change the world.

My single image differs from Watts' as the crucial element of this image - the oak seed itself - is missing. The viewer is left to contemplate the potential a single seed has in becoming something truly splendid.

Materials used:

C-type Fuji Gloss Professional colour paper from the Fuji Crystal archive range with a gloss finish, which accentuates the colour to give a punchy, rich feel.
