moon or sun

  1. Tammie, this is so magical. I really love how you do your tree and clouds! You definitely have a distinct style that works great! I also enjoyed the stroy behind it. It is mystical and inviting, like stepping into Narnia or something. GREAT take on the lantern theme too. Thank you! Lovely to see oyu back here with us at today's picnic. :) Thanks again.

    1. Thank you for considering the details Michael.
      Living in a wilderness area, which is like so many fairy tales... some how it influences much of my art.

  5. Your style is so full of wonder, and wondering. Where is she headed? Somewhere special with that smile on her face I think. I love the lantern, but the star in her other hand is what catches my eye too - and the curled up boots! Your trees are beautiful Tammie.

      Yes, that star wand, what will she do with it.

  12. Having the light gives us such confidence, which shines through in her posture and facial expression.

  13. I love this, Tammie! Great take on the theme. I was thinking the same as Joeks...her confidence shines through as she walks with the lantern. :)

  14. the star she carries could also serve as the lantern, she looks like she's flying instead of walking.

    have a lovely day.

    1. I agree, the star could serve as a lantern as well. Not sure how that came to be, often when I sketch, it just all unfolds without much thought. I think it is a wand. I see what you mean about looking like she is flying. For me her walk was surefooted, strong and with grace, a good feeling thing to do. Something I also enjoy from time to time. Now I might imagine wings when I walk tall and swiftly because of you.
