In art this week the goddess and fairy girlies continue to speak to me... This is "Brigid". I was thinking "Celtic and Rainforest" while I was doing her. Maybe an unusual combo but I liked the idea of it. She conjures up mystical images for me and I was surprised how she just sort of appeared under my pen on a rather blah leftover painted background while watching blah T.V. in my magical art chair. Now she is one of my favorites!
By the way, I'm pretty sure that my chair is magical and therefore partially responsible for my art, lol!
All her jewellery is done in metallic gel ink but didn't gleam in this particular photo. The leaves were done with Copic marker and the rest is my usual Prismacolor pencils. I've decided that the pencils actually give a more intense color and they are blendable. This medium will remain my favorite for these girlies.
My flowers are starting to peek their heads out and show off their gorgeousness so I thought I'd share a couple of photos...
My pale lilacs always bloom first before my deep purple ones. These smell soooo heavenly!
And here are my bleeding hearts. They just popped up as volunteers in my front planter 2 years ago. So delicate and sweet.
My lovely deck is calling to me as are my puppy and kitty who are frolicking out in the sun. They are so happy! The gentle breeze wafts early signs of Summer as it ruffles my locks (that are needing a bit of touch up at the root, ha!). I could bask out here all day! I went and bought some huge chicken breasts earlier and I will give them a Jamaican jerk rub before I toss them onto the bar-b. I simmered up some rice but I haven't decided on the veggies yet. Yum! I'm hungry!
Oh yes, the sun is out and all is right in my world!
Creatively yours, Jessica
