Fairies and Elves


recently i sketched these faces
then over a week colored them

 
 some of them changed quite a bit from the sketch

 each face is about 1 inch square
not always easy to add the details
which can effect change


little characters
perhaps fairies and elves


or
primitive girls

SOC: red red and metallic


even in dancer's pose
she felt a bit like a mountain
grounded and alive
~

tiny little painting
smaller than it looks here
2.5x3.5 inches
hard to do a face that tiny


quinacridone red
permanent deep red
gold

diluting reds.... and pink appears

DC: Plate


how to tease a mouse

the longer they kept her
on the plate
under the bell jar
the more she began to vanish

please set her free

SOC: purple purple and yellow


not sure where this drawing came from
had a slightly different piece in mind
fun how art has a life of it's own
inspiring you each step of the way

purple purple and yellow are this weeks Summer of Color prompts

here is one of our local summer bunnies:
in winter they turn white

Summer Solstice!


Summer for me 
is a season to wander mountain roads

to do things that i begin to long for in the snowy months
deep seasons are like that
they each hold their unique activities
 

i still find it strange
that with the beginning of summer
the days begin to get shorter 
and 
nights longer

~

Sweet and blessed Solstice to You all!
(whether is is Summer or Winter in  your land)
