Artwork

Since discovering Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED), I developed a real love of art.  Now don't get me wrong, I've always been a admirer of artwork, but HAED have really opened my eyes to artists that I never would have known about and styles that I would never have ever considered previously. 

I've largely always been a fan of pencil sketches and have a couple of framed pencil sketches on the walls of my house.  When I saw Nikki Burnette post an original pencil sketch for sale on Facebook, I took the leap and snapped it up.  This is the artwork I bought:



It's now framed and sits on my bedside cabinet so I see it every morning when I wake.  Since then, I've also bought a print of her new work, Rayne:






As well as these, with some money I that I received for my birthday, I bought some signed Jasmine Becket-Griffith prints:

Faces of Faery 117 - Steampunk Witch
Angel of Starlight



















The strange thing is that previously, I've really only ever liked life-like pictures, mainly of females!  Thankfully by other half loves art and even though these pictures wouldn't be his first choice, he appreciates them and encourages me to display them.
