I'm know I'm being silly, but I believe a better translation for "From the Shadows" would be Umbrā, which would be Umbra in the Ablative case. The ablative case translates to By/With/From, which shows it's a sort of association of the noun, or Ex umbrā, where the Ex changes the ablative to something like "Out of" or even "from" Or, if you want a little more Latin and a little more narrowing of meaning, then "Exsessum Umbrā" or "Exsessum ex Umbrā" which translates into "Departure from the shadows." And yeah I'm being sort of silly because It's just a macron you're missing, but "Ex Umbra" Is grammatically incorrect with Latin, since that would make the "Umbra" Be either Nominative or Accusative, and "Ex" is a preposition which only pairs with Ablative cases. Okay I'm going to be quiet now :x

I feel in love with this instantly. I didn't even see the colour at first, only his face and your brush strokes. This is really stunning.

I seriously have no words. The symbolism in your art is overall very profound, and to me he looks very solitary. Lovely piece <3

Wow. I really like the golden feeling of the trees. They pop out quite pleasantly, and give comforting contrast to the otherwise melancholy atmosphere of the picture.
