Found Drawing Forest Sprite

3 Flares 3 Flares ×

Found drawing in my collage of a forest sprite.  Simple black image on a painted and collaged background inspired by the hint of a lettuce leaf from a magazine edge that formed her hair.


Watercolor paper, scraps of painted paper, vintage book pages, kraft, acrylic paint, uniball black pen, gelli printed fabric.


Wind, rain, thunder and lightening, more wind, more rain no power for most of the day.  Breakfast cooked on the wood stove, thankfully we have one. Dark day by candlelight.

    Your photo is fantastic… and I hope you will not have more dayes without power !! so much that is imposssible to do then !!

  10. Very organic forest woman. Nicely done to meet the AJJ challenge.

    I was without power for six days in January one year during a snow and ice storm. I hope you fared better than I.

  11. I’ve no idea how you found the delightful sprite on your collage page, but I love all the texty and collagey goodness and the kind looking forest sprite. She looks very calm.
