Paint Party Friday

Work in Progress...
A page in my SBP journal.
A study for my entry in the Inspiration Avenue weekly challenge,
English Literature.
I picked that rascally little character Puck for my
interpretation of Shakespeare's
A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Why I chose Shakespeare... I don't know.
I find my eyes closing and my brain twirling like a
troupe of dancing fairies when I try to read his plays.
I've tried, but I just can't read him.
Thank goodness I'm no longer in school lol.

But I do love the story, 
if someone else would just write it in everyday English.
Actually someone probably has.

I love Puck.
He appears in other stories also, such as
Puck of Pook's Hill by Rudyard Kipling.

... and some ACEOs
that are in my Etsy shop ...
I used  colored pencil on watercolor paper.

(Note to self ~
How about using WATERCOLOR on watercolor paper
and colored pencil on something smooooth. 
Ugh. I just think I would like that much better.)

Go see what's new over there!


  1. Wonderful art style ~ well done! Love them ~ thanks, namaste, Carol (Share the Creative Journey) Happy PPF!

  2. Puck is a proper cutie!

    We all speaketh like the noble Shakespeare doth thou not knowest in this green and pleasant land?

  3. That is so cute! The boy is just adorable and I love your aceo's. :)

  4. Thank you all!

    Haha, Lisa...I didn't know that! I thought you all spoke like Simon Cowell. Or Gordon Ramsey, whom I can understand perfectly, as long as they are not bleeping out half of what he says. (Maybe they don't do that annoying censorship thing in the UK. I hope not, although G.R. could clean up his language for the telly just a bit IMHO :)

  5. Speaking of the telly. Off to pick up, oddly enough, a TV for my hubby, his Christmas present to himself, imagine that.

    I've been a deadbeat re blog visits. Will be around to visit PPF blogs a little later :)

  6. Puck. He brings to mind Peter Pan each time I read MND.
