The art of "Elfies"

Still a WIP, but I wanted to share the art of 
"layering"

Starting with watercolour splodginess...

working over with coloured pencils,
and a touch of acrylic paint...

deepening the shadows and intensifying colours...

before adding all the little details.

I just love watching my creation grow.

Waking to the Light


 Blessed Imbolc 

A time of renewal,
 of starting things afresh
and today I took time to meditate 
on my guides for 2022.

Last year I called upon Sekhmet, 
goddess of Plagues and Healing 
(and she didn't let me down for a moment)
I take this opportunity to give her thanks.

Whilst joining in with an Imbolc service
performed at the Chalice Well, I joyfully
received knowledge of my totem/guide.
The Nuthatch 
Such a powerful totem, who took me on a journey
from tree top to deep beneath the earth, grounding me 
in the moment, to watch the maiden rise from the mud.
I am filled with joy and hope for the coming year.

With this feisty little warrior to guide my steps
how could I not be.

I hope you all find such helpful guides in your lives.

Blessed Be
