Fair Maid / Foul Weather

I’ve been wanting to make something similar to this for over a year. My rough sketches of ideas have ranged from children, to animals, to animal headed people reaching for the kite in the wires. Based on a song I was listening to about a girl in a storm, I decided to take that route. I might try framing this with two pieces of glass and then a background. I’ve never done that before so it may look horrible. We’ll see. That’s pretty far off though because I haven’t framed that last 4 things I’ve made.
I really need a flat file.

Not Every One Moves Beyond Their PastThis will be the last one for a while.
It has been a long time in the making.
If anyone follows me anywhere else (Instagram / Facebook) then you’ll probably recognize this as a theme I was rough illustrating from last summer.
As always, please personally visit the Waxwing and Sparrow Collective for current works for sale.

Rite Of SpringI always enjoy watching all the animals in my yard instinctively pair off and travel everywhere together in spring.
What seems so effortless for them is so difficult for people.
Maybe giant crow feathers will help.
