The Murky Waters Nixie

A digital play as preview to my "Murky Waters Nixie"
I will have to photograph her tomorrow with daylight.
I am not an aquarel expert by all means, but I did this one on watercolourpaper with watercolour paint and pencils and then I added inks, stamps, acrylics, glaze, more watercolouir paint and at last some Golden glass bead gel which I covered with some more diluted sparkly paints.
She is my "Halloween" project for this year,
since I am all submerged with the water sprites.....

Where do I belong ?

One of the journal entries...
While I was starting to draw something over the gesso layer that I had painted over my text,
I suddenly had to think about the little hermit crab with its house on its back, that little hermit crab belongs wherever it is, because it's got its house with him.
A comfy thought....

some prompts I worked on
...there is more...
...which I'll show at a later stage...

PiraTeS love MErmAidS Yo Ho !

"Yo Ho, Yo Ho , a pirates life for me
we pillage and plunder, we rifle and loot
Aye and we're loved by our Mermies to boot,
Drink up me 'earties YoHo !..."
(my own spin on the lyrics of "YoHo" by Xavier Antencio)
