I just finished this painting, I am so proud of it! I have been meaning to do another ethnic looking fairy/elf for some time now since I painted "Bird of Paradise" so I am very excited to unveil this new piece. I used a photo for reference that took of a beautiful girl that was my neighbor at MegaCon 2008. Not only was she super sweet, but she posed like a dream & had the most gorgeous curly hair I have ever seen! She had sense of mystery & magic in her eyes that I was aiming to capture & she seemed very regal to me as well. The original painting was created using oil on an oval canvas & measures 11x14 inches.
