The Fairy Princess

Pencil sketch with digital color 

A few days ago the Fairy Princess found me at my drawing table and offered to grant a wish.

"But," she said, "my wand has been having problems lately, so it might take months or years to come true."

"If it takes years, how will I know that your wand made it happen, or if it was something that would have happened anyway?" (I do like to ask confusing questions when fairies visit!)

"Oh, it will be the wand!" she assured me.

And after all, who can disbelieve a seven-year-old fairy with purple wings?

if: Duet

Pen & Ink and Watercolor
A watercolor I did of my sister a few years ago. Maybe she's practicing Mozart's tabletop duet--one sheet of music with each person reading from the opposite end. Very clever. :) {listen to the duet on youtube}
