frieda's fairy princess...and off to germany!!! and ironically, this week's new illustration friday topic of "flying"!
here is a sweet little fairy princess for my boyfriend's niece freida who lives in germany. we are going there this coming wednesday (oct. 14th) for his brother's wedding. i thought it would be a nice gesture to make frieda this sweet little princess...i am hoping she loves it:) i am nervous beyond belief!!! NEVER been out of the country and his family speaks NO ENGLISH!!! i guess i won't be saying much for 5 days, huh?;)
it will be a whirlwind of a trip to say the least. we land in amsterdam on thurs morn and take a train to germany to his parents then to a hotel to stay for the night before the wedding. friday is the wedding, saturday back to another hotel in amsterdam and then...the HIGHLIGHT of my LIFE...the van gogh museum on sunday!!! i am still in shock that i will be going there...it's all i have ever wanted to see my whole life and it is so sweet of carsten to take me there:) and then, home on monday! definitely going to be a whirlwind...but so worth it:)
this weekend i will be painting another fairy princess for my girlfriend laura's little girl mia:) i am hoping that painting will help take away some of my nervous energy and anxiety about the flight/trip on wednesday!!!
just an update- saw this week's new i.f. topic is "flying"...figured this piece was appropriate;) enjoy:))))
