Play of light

I love how light plays on the lilly petals, and I strove to mimic that here. I love the color blue, and particularly the shade here, French ultramarine blue.

In other news, I’m starting an Etsy shop for this and other paintings. It’s a work in progress so far! I will be selling original artworks there, and the styles will range from oil, acrylic, and watercolor on canvas and paper. In addition, I’ll be looking into the production of enameled pins, coffee mugs. If you have an idea you’d like me to look into, I’d be so grateful for ideas. Until next time, friends.

Green Mermaid

This one is tiny, practically, only five by seven inches. The lady practically lept off the paint though. I will have to revisit her again. She was a fun visitor, and oil painting is a good medium for her. 

I’ve been rereading some of W. B. Yeats’ poetry. Heres a piece that seems particularly fitting and appealing right now; just make sure you come back afterward. The world needs you awake and present.

“Come away, O human child!

To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand,

For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”

-W. B. Yeates, The Collected Poems of WB Yeats
