I <3 Mermaids

Good morning friends!  I wanted to show you another piece of art I did.  This version was finished many years ago.  I love mermaids so much!

Drawn with pencil, then inked, then colored with markers, then played around in Photoshop.  I love her hair and her tail and the little fishes!  I wish I had done a color test first though. I don’t think it came together as well as it did in my head.

Faery Tree

When I was in college the art gallery nearby installed an interactive dome structure.  I’m not sure what it was called now, but you could go in it and meditate, or sleep, or walk around the outside planks, or just listen to the ambient sounds they had playing.  One day I went in and napped.  When I woke up I remembered a dream I had about this tree.  It was white with glowing flowers and leaves.  A faery tree.  This image is inspired by that dream.  It is made with paint, charcoal, colored pencils, copied a couple of times, and some more paint I think.  It’s still one of my favorites.  ❤

Mountaintop Echoes

An ink on paper piece that I did in college.  Still one of my favorites.  It reminds me of how the moon can create amazing, dark shadows on everything in the winter.  The shadows contrasted with the snow and the sky lit up so bright is a haunting image that is one of the most beautiful to witness.  ❤
