Bookworm / Snow Bunny
11x15" signed, one of a kind, original watercolor on Arches paper.
This original shows pencil under drawing, some paint splash marks and pin holes from when I excitedly stuck it up on my inspiration board to decide whether or not I liked it. And I did! It became the first 2019 calendar girl and sparked the revolution that was the rest of all the Bookworm series.
I chose for her to be reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe because it begins with a crossing-over into another world. It sets a mood of fantastical and imaginative possibility. And as she is the first painting of this series, I wanted her, and her book to invite you to step through the old fur coats and emerge into the magic of this series with me as we explore all the painted stories that lay ahead!
