Edelweiss from Heaven - Bookmark

I listed this today in e-bay, nothing special but I love bookmarks and I use remnant pieces of paper to do those.

Waterhouse Rendition - Boreas ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolor and gouache, 2008

This is a watercolor rendition of a detail from the Waterhouse painting "Boreas". Boreas was the north wind, and he had courted Oreithyia all winter with no success. Finally one spring morning he spied her picking flowers and carried her away, hence why she is clutching her shawl and holding it to herself as he blows around her.

My Family

8 x 11 inches, watercolor with gouache, 2008
I painted this today - it's a portrait of my partner Mike and I with our cat Tom and dog Ziggy. It's a present for Mike's birthday tomorrow. I got him to pose for the photo I used by telling him an old friend had been in touch after many years and wanted to see a picture of us, which is sort of true LOL. Of course getting the animals to sit still was a bit of a nightmare but it all worked out in the end :)
