Lately I’ve been doing more coughing and sneezing than art of any kind (I will be so glad when this cold is gone). This weekend was a flurry of activity with a soccer game and a hockey game in the same day.
But I have managed to start something for my best friend’s daughter. To her kids, I am Aunt Karebear and that’s how it’s always going to be. My “niece” and I share a middle name and a love for faeries and art. She is my little artsy mini pixie with the bright red hair and I love her to pieces. So for her birthday this year, I thought it’d be fun to make her an Aunt Karebear original, a fun funky faery with pigtails.
It’s not finished obviously. Tomorrow I hope to get the watercolor down and start on the paper flowers I’ll be adding to it. I look forward to seeing the look on my niece’s face when she opens up her present!
