From the Book



Working on some more Ikarian mice.  Ikara is a land were the wee mice dwell and have magical hearts.  Tho they use very little of their magic, and prefer to use what God and the earth provide.  Such lovely little creatures.  The girls have beautiful fairy wings, and the boys have strong, dashing angel wings.

A piece I hope to make into a large painting some day.  My sister in law mentioned I should do more couples in my work, and I agree!  So on a small road trip this past weekend I drew this.  Again the woman has fairy wings, and the man has angel wings.  I came up with the concept because in the Bible it does not mention the angels being female, and we see more female fairies then male.  So I decide that since women are delicate and nurturing creatures the fairy wings fit.  And because men are strong, and protective creatures they should have angel wings.  I like this idea because in my heart, it fits.  It's my imagination anyways.  :P
