In April, I made a 5×7 set of three Season Fairies to go with my 11×14 Winter Fairies painting I made one late night in December. I was anxiously awaiting the warm weather, and it’s finally come! Well, it’s been here a while, but I went swimming yesterday, so now it’s officially summer. To commemorate… Continue reading Thing A Week #4
Yesterday I made a really cool watercolor painting, that inspired me to create a similar painting with acrylic on an 8×10 canvas. Again it’s relatively simplistic, although, I had a broader color palette this time and did an undercoat of pink before applying the blue to make an interesting periwinkle sky. The fairy’s dress is… Continue reading Pink Thicket
Earlier this year I made a list of goals – I’ve done quite a few so far and yesterday, we gave ourselves an early anniversary present, which I also happened to put on my “what I want to do this year” list. We got a cat! and named him Tonks. I had an idea… Continue reading Tonks and Blue Shadows.
I’m so close to being back to normal, I’m really happy. Today I finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and walked to the library to take out the Half Blood Prince, and then reserved the Deathly Hallows (on CD!). Can’t wait to finish the series, honestly. It’s moving and hits something that… Continue reading I'm Better!
I finished my second fairy house today. Added all the decorations, admittedly, mostly glitter. I also found a few other odds and ends to put inside – my compact mirror and some tiny animals from boxes of Red Rose tea (or whatever it’s called). I used my bottle cap to top the thread-spool-crochet-topped mushroom table… Continue reading I think I used too much glitter…
Today, I’m doing a little better. Still averse to coughing and sneezing all over my paints – not to mention making my neck-ache worse (hate colds or whatever this is). So I think, I’m going to build another fairy house with one of the tiny cardboard boxes we recently got instead. This may or may… Continue reading Playing with Cardboard Again
Over halfway through Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire, I painted on my last piece of watercolor paper. I guess I’ll need to stop by the art store sooner than I thought – in the mean time, I suppose I’ll be using the last few canvases. I am disappointed with my brushes though. They’ve… Continue reading Falling Fruit
So today, I got in my gaming keypad and spent the morning getting used to it while listening to some podcast about Sherlock Holmes (the movie, with RDJr.). I found a sweet spot in Nagrand above the throne of elementals where, well, all the elementals live and you can farm for motes to your hearts… Continue reading Bubble Fairy (and Transmutation)
She restores life where-ever she goes and when her light fades new life shines. Her last breath will be her most beautiful moment – her life fulfilled in restoring others to see the beauty in theirs. (16×20 Acrylic) Based on my Concept.
