Twilight Garden Faerie

Twilight softly falls.  As the crickets start their song, the crescent moon is seen rising above the painted garden.  The tiny brook gurgles gently down it's lazy path between the willow trees and the large mop head hydrangeas nod their heads in the cool breeze.  There by the split rail fence where the the clematis vines climb, a pretty little face peers out, moonlight reflecting in her violet eyes...

Twilight Garden Faerie

Welcome to Kristin's Summer of Color's purple week.  I have a feeling this week will be a big hit for purple lovers everywhere.  I know it's one of my favorite colors to work with.  I wish I had had more time to work with this doodle girlie but I'm afraid I had to wrap it up a little early so it will have to do for my entry this week.  It seems like the muse rarely visits when I am so tired - or maybe I just can't hear or feel her quite as well. 

It's sure been fun to meet everyone who has followed the challenge but to be honest it was much bigger than I anticipated and it has been a challenge in itself just to keep up with all of you fabulous artists!   I hope those of you that I have missed from time to time or I have not responded to directly will forgive me.  Just know that I have enjoyed you all and your art and appreciate all the comments and support you have given me (and my Dad!).  He is holding his own right now but circumstances are becoming a little more demanding of my time and energy.

Please accept my apology in advance if I am not able to respond to all of you this week!  I will try my best of course -  I adore purple!

I am looking forward to wearing as much purple, lavender and lilac clothing as I can this week in honor of Summer of Color!  

Forever in art,

Jessi xox

I love your purple girl....she has such a thoughtful look in her eyes. The song for my purple queen is Goin To California by Led Zepplin...a rare acoustic by them.
I'm sorry you are so tired. I know how hard it is to be a caretaker. Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog. Hug..Nan
