Alannah - new painting - book illustrating.....

Hey everybody! As I mentioned before, I'm illustrating a book of short stories (written by the talented authors Kachina Glenn & Amber Logan!). It's a daunting task requiring dozens of illustrations, but I have just finished the first one and she is BEAUTIFUL! One of the best paintings I've done. I'm able to offer the paintings for sale along the way, so be on the lookout for more soon. The book will not be out for quite some time, but I will let you know when it is published, too.

"Alannah" is the name - it is an portrait of one of the girls in the book I'm doing the illustrations for. It is a hauntingly beautiful painting - I'm very proud of her. Alannah is a girl who lives in an ancient cathedral, as a caretaker. She has grey swirling hair, striking grey eyes, and wings made out of stone. I have shown her standing in the cathedral with a candle in her hands and a key on a necklace around her neck. There are stained glass windows in the background, with light filtering in. The cathedral is actually based visually on one I visited on my trip to France this summer! She's quite large and very, very detailed - measuring 16"x20" - original acrylics on sheet of canvas. This piece may be of particular interest to collectors as she will be published in an upcoming book (ie, she might be famous someday, hehe!). This original painting is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 10-Day auction ending the evening of Friday, September 21st at 4:55PM Central Time. You can see a sneak peek of her now, but just click the picture or link to see the full painting!:
