As part of my talented friend, Katie Gerrard's book launch for 'Seidr - The Gate is Open', I decided to invoke Freyja and create in a semi trance (all whilst streaming on Ustream!!)
The painting which was only meant to take 3 or 4 hours became a bit o a Norse saga itself, but was completed yesterday, and is now available on my Etsy store as prints :) http://www.etsy.com/listing/68987020/painting-of-the-goddess-freyja

The Dragon of the Faery Mound...
The Moon is bright and full in the night sky, and inside the Faery mound a party is brewing.
The Dragon coils protectively around the hill, guarding the door from any unwanted visitors...

My 3rd ACEO, my little gothic girl, adorned with black widow spiders, and a tell-tale trickle of blood. Every time I look at this I start humming 'Gothic Girl' by the 69 Eyes... Or Lullaby by The Cure :)....
Anyhows all my ACEO's are for sale on my sparkling new Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LauraRedWitch?ref=pr_shop
And £2 from each sale goes to the NOWZAD animal charity.
Until next time... x

I thought I'd give making some ACEO's a go! I only heard about them last month, but now I'm seeing them everywhere. It's quite a challenge to keep the drawings small, but lots of fun! Here are two new faerie friends for you! Evangeline Crow Heart and Snake Sidhe...

Me at the exhibition, with my framed cover art for Anna McKerrow's 'Spectral Emphatic' poetry book.
Was lovely to go to the open night, see a couple of faces from my Falmouth days, and some wonderful artwork to boot.
The exhibition is on til February 12th @ The Illustration Cupboard, Bury St, Mayfair, London.

She brings the spark of life, of love, creativity and hope when you need it the most. When winter seems too long, the moon too dark, and people too cold, she will weave her shimmering web of ether for you, and illuminate the night.
She watches her hand with focus and care, and creates something new; something gold, silver, sparkling and blue.
Just as she creates her own magic, she shows you how to create your own. Never forget you have the power to create yourself, hopeful and new each day. The spark of light and love is always within you, she is just here to remind you...

This picture was done yesterday, but as you can probably tell by the state of the picture, I was way too tired to manage scanning in and blogging! So this is yesterday's sleepy offering posted today. It was dark moon yesterday, and strange energies were afoot! Here's the results :)
