Artwork Description

The wind blows. Sings. Calls. The castaways of autumn whirl through the air in a spiral dance of gold. Coinage of the gods. Feather bright. Swan gilded light. Whispering with a melody woven from a tesselation that ripples ripples spirals skiiiiiiiiirls through the air and under her feet.

I've seen this somewhere. It seems too familiar. I think I saw on another site but I'm not sure. Elfwood maybe?

Well, I'd love to see that if you ever do scan them. I've not had a chance to read that yet.

Dear Stephanie:

Your subject matter is of myth and magic, yet it speaks to a very real and viseral part of my soul! It was difficult to choose a favorite! Thank you for sharing your gifts! I will be forwording this site to my friends, and my husband.(I need "Moon Petals"!) I look forward to visiting this site again!

Um...there isn't really a How-To guide for it. I just pencil in the swirls before I start, and then when I paint, I do lots of layers, and treat the swirls like hard edges.

I really love this. Gingkos happen to be one of my favorite trees. The foxes are always a nice touch to your work whether or not they were meant to be there. I never quite get how you do swirls w/wind and water and stuff. How do you do it?!?! I bet you've explained this a lot, though...^_^

The water was a semi-accidental touch, but I like it too. =)

Somehow foxes keep wriggling their way into my pictures. I swear, they weren't supposed to be there!

Well, I just got back from a couple month stint in Japan. And I just had images in my head of the hillsides coated with those yellow leaves....

Terribly interesting - the gingko is rare - I don't think I've ever seen their leaves in art before! Nice choice of color, and the circular shapes spiralling in the background provide much to look at. Thanks for posting - i've seen your work on Elfwood, and adored it =)

Stunning, as usual... you have always that dreamy, smooth feeling without losing any essence of movement, and this is no exception. The water is an especially nice touch. Great Smile
