lily~petal pixie #2


here is the second little pixie in my series entitled "petal pixies". her name is lily and her favorite flower is a beautiful calla lily. she carries a bouquet of them (which can be magical at times if she waves them a certain way;)). and of course, she wears them in her hair as well. lily's sweet little friend is a canary named sunshine. a REPRODUCTION of her can be found here in my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/62896874/lily-petal-pixie-reproduction
and don't forget blue belle who can also be found in my shop.

coming up next will be beautiful little daisy...:)

daisy and sakura~petal pixies

meet 'bluebelle'...


she is first in a series of little fairies i am designing called 'petal pixies'. as odd as this sounds, i was inspired by the color name of a yarn i was using while crocheting. just proves inspiration can be found anywhere at anytime! i intend to do a few more and paint them up and sell them as personalized prints in my etsy shop. i'm thinking they would make the cutest little christmas gift(s) for any little girl:)
also, i am thinking of making them available as custom paintings as well...sold as originals, not prints.
below, i have attached a very ROUGH colored pencil sketch of the colors i am planning on using once i pick up the paintbrush.

the latest...


i finally have gotten my new website/blog up and running at
http://www.nicolesnurseryart.blogspot.com/
here is where i will be posting all of my custom nursery art. some already for sale in my etsy shop at http://www.enchantedeasel.etsy.com/
and samples of some custom listings. occasionally i will post them here as well. i am trying to keep this blog for my illustrations and future projects (stamps, books, etc.) and i might even post some of my fine art here as well.
the cute little bears above are listed FOR SALE in my etsy shop and my first full set of paintings since my second surgery a few weeks ago. painting has been rather difficult and painful these last few weeks due to the posterior cut in the back of my neck, but i'm slowly getting back in the game. and ready to take on custom orders for the holidays!
once again, i give thanks to the amazing neurosurgeon who fixed me and made me all better...AGAIN! words truly escape me for this man...
