Little jewels, in unexpected places....


-----------------------------


Artist's Notes: I actually dreamed this image a few nights ago, and scribbled it down in my journal. It wasn't a 'hand' door knocker that I dreamed, but it was ornate and beautiful. When I found the hand though... well, I fell in love with it.

Amazing use of colour, the dragons around the edge of the knocker make a lovely addition, & the dragonfly finishes it off beautifully ^_^ I love dragonflies :D

This is spectacular. I've seen a door-knocker just like this in real life... in Spain. I wanted it so bad!

Unreal. Just so beautiful... I can see how this arrived in your dreams. Just once would I like to peek inside of those dreams of yours. To be part of them... or just engage them. You're a true poet of the brush Foxy.

I like everything about this picture. It's very surreal and fantasy-like. I agree with the person who said that it reminded them of Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal.

im speechless aimee, coz all comments have not only said it all but made it difficult for me to actually come up with a praise as worthy.

your're one of those artists that make me just stare at their creation, picturing it in relation to another form of art and for those few moments all will make sense...and if it doesnt...it wont matter anyway, we have our expression.

LOVE your work.

hehe - do, they are sooo lovely.

There may be a few in my pic that you won't find in her available sets, because she made me an exclusive set that I use all the time. But the other two sets are wonderful!
