Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Oh my goodness...I think I'm going to do hair in water color from now on! I borrowed a sheet of watercolor paper from Maddie, pulled out a few old watercolor pencils & went to town :)

So much fun actually that I started another piece that I'm so excited about...she's going to be called "Summer" & can not wait to share her.

Here is "Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder" I keep hearing this in the *art* world...& the phrase came to mind after creating her & showing her to Darling husband after he replied..."pink hair, really?"

"Young at Heart"

A portrait like no other... I was overjoyed to get a request to do a portrait from someone for her very special friend who has an upcoming birthday. She asked if I can do not just any old portrait, but a fantasy one, like my girls I create. I can't tell you how happy that made me because it's the magic and the fantasy that is at the heart of all my drawings :)

Here is a girl who has a passion for all things magical... I called this piece "Young at Heart" as I wanted to capture her spirit on paper... that no matter how much time goes by, the butterflies and everything that makes her young and free will always be there, captured in this artwork forever.

What fun I had on this project, & dealing with this client was quite the Kindred Spirit herself!

Where to Start?

I've said it before, but I'll say it again...You can just pinch me...so that I know I'm not dreaming! I've been sooo busy I've barely had time to come on here and talk about my artwork let alone visit everyone to see what my lovelies have been up to!

I'm so incredibly happy to report that "Pure" & "Forget Me Not" were sold as a pair :D  I was really hoping that they would stay together...my heart is happy knowing that they will forever be enjoyed as a pair :)

What's next... I created of all things, a lion for a lovely women from Australia who went to South Africa on Holiday and wanted me to recreate one of her pictures... How incredibly inspiring! Here he is, just completed today.

Here is "My Secret Garden" She was a work in progress which seems like took forever, & I still don't think she's finished. But I really like her so never the less, here she is.

"Hurting" She was a work in progress for a while as well...what's the name Heather? She had a name for all of the unfinished projects laying around the house...that's how I've been feeling lately!
