She wanders alone, Exploring a world not her own, Seeking someone to love, And a place to call home. ~ Janna Vanderveen
Would you awaken the moon For a glimpse of the queen? Would you open your eyes And risk being seen? For she laces the frost With her silver-hearted breath, Creating beauty in madness, She whispers life into death. ~ Janna Vanderveen
She materialized to life From the shadowland’s hold. Filled with color and light And visions untold. ~ Janna Vanderveen
She ruled, not with an iron fist, But with an iron-clad mind, For her identity found footing in love, And her compassion could not be shaken. ~ Janna Vanderveen
Where science and fantasy meet, Imagination abounds. From the pixels, Pixies emerge, And beauty astounds. ~ Janna Vanderveen
Sometimes I splash inks, watercolors, and acrylics onto paper just to see what happens. Within the chaos an image usually forms, and in this case, I found fan adorable little fantasy creature. What is she? A who’s it, or what’s that, or whatchamacallit? You tell me. Regardless, I fell in love with her flower filled hair and tail puff, her tiny fairy wings, and her big eyes.
Vivid, colorful, and full of light, this young woman surfaced on my page as I coaxed her to life with my fingers and brushes. I painted her on a 4″ by 6″ piece of watercolor paper (140 lb.) using acrylics, oils pastels, and inks.
Imaginative friends are a wonderful treat! Today I indulged my creative side by spending time with my great friend, Debi. We discussed book writing, story development, and practiced drawing people. What a blast! This particular sketch took me less than 3 minutes to craft. I love its loose lines and whimsy. Supplies Used: Sketch Paper, Elegant Writer, Derwent Inktense Pencils, Overlays
