I created this painting for an upcoming show in October-
Forbearance (Golden)

And here is the first Forbearance I created a few months ago-
Forbearance (Raven)

I can't decide which one I like better. Which do you prefer?

Faery Dust

Today she flew onto my canvas. Quite literally.

(Pst. She also flew here.)

Birds of a Feather (Escape)
I painted her today:

Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather (Detail)

Admittedly, she didn't come smoothly, but I really like how she turned out. All I needed was a bit of Holly Palmer to get it right.

She is submitting herself to the theme of "escape" of this week's theme at Illustration Friday.

Stumble Upon
A special thanks to Liz who enlightened me to the ways of Stumble Upon. I get it! I now understand! Thanks Liz! (Who is a fabulous artist. How very, very clevAH to paint young girls with sub-machine oozies. Also, check out her husband's art for a good laugh.)

Breath of Fresh Air
I finished creating this little lady yesterday:
breath of fresh air

breath of fresh air detail

I don't usually do "my divas" so innocent and chaste (ha!) But as always, they simply demand to come out the way they demand to come out. I just want to hug this one . . . Although she does look a bit slippery.

If you like her, you can have her. Go here. (But hurry. You only have a week.)

I have had the most tumultuous of days that it seems irrelevant to even mention until my life goes back to it's usual self. (Whatever that might be. I dunno.) So, that said, I will be back when life returns to something comprehensible. Because right now it's playing out like a David Lynch movie.
