"Afraid"

I've had her completed for some time now, (see, girl in my header) don't know why I've not listed her till now...I suppose I'm not really happy with the way my art's been photographing lately...It looks just so much darker than the original drawing making me very unhappy :/  I really need to invest in a scanner!!

Anyway, have I mentioned I love drawing detail!? The eyes...I always put so much emphasis on the eyes...without emotion in the eyes, to me the piece would be meaningless.  Later, I gave her a lovely delacate dress, little wings & long flowing hair incorporating a braid & just a touch of flowers....So... here she is; I've caller her *Afraid* she doesn't know what lies ahead of her.  All of the fear in her eyes is because she's uncertain of her future & keeps looking back, wishing she could go back in time. But there's no turning back now...

A Precious Little Girl & her Monogram

I was commissioned to draw a portrait of this beautiful little girl. Isn't she just a doll? What an inspiration she was to me... Not only is she beautiful but what personality she has in her little face :) It's amazing, because a picture does tell a thousand words...So what joy it was to create this piece using simply a photograph to capture all the loveliness that she possess.

Portrait

I was told that she loves princesses...but of course, she is one!  Couldn't help but work the tiara into this piece & well, the butterfly slowly transformed into a princess as well :)

A Beautiful Photographer

Her photography to put it mildly is amazing! She's Jodi over at Fresh Art Photography    Here
and to celebrate her 32nd birthday, she's having an awesome amount of giveaways! Which I think is so fabulous because it's giving us small businesses some exposure, as I know all too well how hard it is to get your shop out there!

So needless to say, I'm sponsoring one of her give aways, my most favorite print "Innocence"

My go at ACEOs :)

OoOO lookie, I made some ACEO's ... & how fun are they!?  A little miniature drawing...too cute for me, I think I'm addicted already!  Here are 2 that I've made in the past few days...the drawings measure at 2.5" x 3.5" comparable to a baseball card.
