Purple Fairy

I finally got my newest painting done! She is going into an auction at the elementary school I work at. I think she came out quite good!


I'm so proud! I hate to see her go tomorrow when the lady in charge of the auction comes to get her. Oh well. That is what I made her for. Now I have a very high res copy to make prints from! I'm so excited!!! Her skin is watercolor and the rest is acrylics! The dress and some of the wing parts actually are shimmer paint! I got the inspiration from Jasmine Becket-Griffith.

I hope this painting will bring in some commissions. I'm putting my business cards out with the painting at this silent auction. I'll keep you posted!

Hi Kristen,
I love your Purple Fairy. You are a very good painter. Isn't it always a little sad to let something go that you put so much into. I guess that's part of it all. Have a great day!
