    So beautiful. Makes me feel like a little girl who believes in magic.

    Love this Fairy Godmother and her magic, Anni. It would definitely go with my fairies and dragons in my writing loft. Hope I win! 🙂

    She looks magical. Beautiful colors together.

    This reminds me so much of Guillermo Jorge Manuel Jose by Mem Fox. I’m intrigued from the top of her hair dollop to the Zoe of her wand. Beautiful! =)

    Thanks for the great comment, Kristen!

    Billow and twirl
    A magical girl!

    Wishes fly high
    Her wand catches my
    Hope and desire
    And grants it. Admire!

    What a great illustration! My six year old granddaughter would love to be this person as she is often playing ‘wizard’ or ‘fairy godmother’ or ‘magician’. And don’t we all wish we could have that special One Wish:)

  8. I’m crazy about fairy tales and Zoe reminds me of a great fairy tale character. I look at her and my mind immediately begins to create her story. I would love to know your story behind her when you created her – but she certainly is magical. Love the colors and her loosely tied hair. She makes me smile for sure! Well done!

      No story, Jayne; just a celebration of the person whose name will appear near the wand. I’ve done these as birth announcements. The topknot adds to the sense that she’s floating. Cool that she inspires your imagination!
