Painting!

Guess what? I just answered a bunch of email, and then I went to the Post Office! Can you believe that? Who would have thought I'd spend my morning that way???? {/end sarcasm}

Now though, I'm getting ready to paint!

I'm working on a commission for wobblesnorts, and I'll probably finish her up later today. I've almost got the primary fairy in the piece finished, and I just need to add wings, some details, and a small fairy up on her shoulder, hehe!

After that I'll get started on a Fairy Dwelling painting. I'm uploading some photos I took on vacation right now from my camera, which should have some great reference photos. caitygrl96 also gave me a couple of photos I might incorporate into a painting too.....

Also today I'd like to get some icons to post up here for anybody who wants to use them! I might put some up in the faerie_icons community too, just to get some "official" icons out there. I keep seeing my artwork turn up as icons in the icon communities, and in other journals, and they always are just lifted off of my website with the ugly watermarks all over them, so I'd like to make some for my fans that don't have to have the copyright junk on them. Since they're just tiny little low res gifs, I don't think I need to worry about watermarking them, lol.

Ok - off to work - watch me here!
