My latest painting series started on a solo flight home from Japan last Spring. I was already sad having to leave, as I always am, but I made the sadness so much worse by watching an animated Hiroshima movie. After it finished playing I started sketching what just last week became “the Duchess”.
She has a Marie Antoinette’s court kind of vibe and is painted with acrylics on a wooden panel. She has a tiny chickadee in her hair to the left. You can still purchase this piece HERE! The minute I began re-creating her on the wooden panel I started to think of other lovely otherworldy ladies I wanted to create in a similar style.
Next up was my Unicorn Fairy Queen. She sold minutes after I listed her on my etsy painting page.
I began the original superhero “Chrysanthemum” here while I was still finishing the Unicorn, and I actually rushed so I could devote all of my time to her. I saw her vivid teal hair with neon flowers playing off rich violet and coffee skin tones so clearly in my mind and could not wait to get her realized. I feel, for the first time in a long time that she actually came out even better than I had imagined her. The lace neckline detail is a particular bright spot for me. She is still available for now – click HERE.
Finally we have the sweet Irish Sheep girl fairy. She came to mind immediately upon the completion of “Chrysanthemum”. I wanted to play with the lace detailing a little more and I really wanted to paint a Ginger with freckles. I JUST finished her today. She is available HERE.
I am really loving this painting series and I see them complimenting my creepy skull portraits so well. I am not quite sure what is next, but I will be creating more. Feel free to share your ideas and/or requests!
