Gorgeous. Very close to my moods. I hung lights on the branches of "their" tree, in reality).)

Someday, I must purchase one of your prints for my boyfriend. He's fascinated by the lore about foxes, and I think the way you use foxes in your work would really appeal to him.

Ohmygosh. I just realized that was your book. I thought the art looked really familiar. I've thought that this style of watercolor was the most beautiful I'd ever seen since I opened that book. Unfortunately, I am hopeless with paints, but I still love reading that book to admire the lovely artwork!

Being a rune reader I prefer stones to cards--cards change the reading system--but if you were to make a rune card deck I would buy it.

The many salutations to Sowelo. I love that you've included the actual rune in her garments. Is this just one of a set (or future set)? I know that I'd love to see your interpretation of the other runes, as well!

It's only intended as a single piece. It was commissioned by someone.

Ah, fair enough. I did miss that (probably half on purpose/wishful thinking) in the description. :)

Thank you for sharing it, though!


Here's a random question on commissions...  I don't know if there is an art-world 'standard' but when sharing an image that was a commission, is it the artist's job to ask the commissioner? Or by dint of being the artist is that simply your right? Knowing this image was a commission just reminded me that I've wondered this when I've asked permission, myself, from commissioners to share the work for portfolio purposes and such.

It depends on whether the artist has sold copyrights, or signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement). When in doubt, it doesn't hurt to ask the artist, as they can refer you to the proper person if it is not them.

Hey Stephanie, a while ago (possibly on your blog and not here), you mentioned a particular site that was helpful in picking color pallets that one wouldn't normally use.Do you happen to recall the site name? I'd love to try it out!
