Lady of Light
Here's "Lady of Light," my portrait of Galadriel for Spoke Art's "Lord of the Thrones" show opening Thursday June 2nd! 

This piece measures 11"x14" and was (painstakingly) painted in watercolor. 

Many, many thanks to Reine-Haru for her beautiful veiled stock, which I referenced here. (To be honest, I gave up trying to copy the veil exactly and went off on my own design, haha).

Right now, I'm running a crowd-funding campaign to recover lost savings, which will ultimately lead to having a studio space again (my impending daughter's nursery took over the space). One of the rewards I'm offering for contributions is a six week online watercolor class. This has been requested of me quite often, so I'm very excited to be able to offer it! 

There are lots of other exciting rewards available too, including a Process & Technique DVD if the class is too far out of your budget! 

Head over here for more information.

Hope to see some of you sign up! :D
