They danced a wild dance of celebration as these two spirits finally hooked up!
This is the fourth piece in a series of Tree Spirits I am creating for a display next month to be shown at the Lakeland Community College library. A friend I work with at the Willoughby Hills library also works for the college library, and he asked if I would be interested in showing my work for his spring/summer display. Mark has a knack for motivating me. He's also the one who poked at me when I didn't think I had enough time to pull off the Tomie dePaola Award this past November. Although I didn't win, I now have a nice piece for my online portfolio That art may also end up in his display.
It's good to have people who motivate you. Being a freelance creative is sometimes a lonely business, and when you find those people in your life that give you that extra push it's always a good thing.
As for the piece above; I like it in black and white, yet I think I will be adding some touches of color, to be more consistent with the other three.
