Midnight Voyage

Midnight Voyage - Acrylic, 9" x 12"

It's always a kick to add magical elements to my illustrations when I get a chance. This one was a cover for a Reading textbook. The only art direction I had was to include a boat and to make it a bit mysterious. I thought the sparkly flying fish racing alongside added that bit of magic the piece needed.

Lovely! Wonderful motion in all parts of it--the waves, the fish, the flags. Great colors too.

(and as far as your profile goes, I seriously doubt it was the Christmas gift that made you into an artist).
