Tween Fairy Princess

I'm having a sad week. My step-dad passed away on Friday afternoon. His death was very unexpected.  My mom is doing very well and his memorial service will be held in April back home in Canada.

As you know, my father-in-law passed away just six weeks ago so there has been more grief in our home than we can manage. It's just so incredibly strange to go from two dads to none in a little over a month.

Please excuse any unanswered comments and emails. I'm a bit behind right now.


I've been painting a lot. This is one I made last week and am now finally photographing. I had the pleasure of meeting a friend for coffee and she has two delightful little girls. They are SO incredibly stylish that I wanted to make a fairy girl honoring that modern vibe that girls have now. 

Here she is:

 It's a big change for me to try painting instead of collage but it's a wonderful challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

My heart goes out to you and your family. The passing of one beloved person is hard enough. So sad that you have to go through the process twice in as many months. Heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

I love your fairy and I especially love her textured wings!

I'm sorry your family is going through so much loss. Big hugs to you. And the painting is lovely. Do you do commission type work? I'd love a painting in your style but with a lot of purples in it, with a girl with long brown hair like mine and a quote of something or other. I'm not sure what.

Nicole- I am so sad to read this. My sympathies. I think your painted fairy is just as charming as your collaged pieces-you are wonderful at painting.

I'm so sorry to read this Nicole, will be thinking of you through this difficult time.

Your fairy is gorgeous, and totally captures that tween spirit :-)
