Thanks, Kim. Yes, I do tend to use a lot of detail in my work --just part of my personal style I guess. I don't think I could avoid it now if I wanted to! I'm glad people find it appealing.....

Why, thanks for visiting Amy K.! I had the basic idea of a mother and baby --and tried to imagine just what a fairy cradle might look like. This was my interpretation. I had a lot of fun with this painting.....

A very sweet painting, beautifully detailed. Your texture work on the frog and the wood is stunning, and I love the look of the creeping vines on the hanging cradle (what a fun concept!). I would have to say this is my favorite of your posted works to date, though I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!
