East O the Sun West O the Moon: Two Versions

This is based on an old fairy story from the north, one I always liked because the girl set out to save her lover from a curse and not the other way around.

In fact, that polar bear you see is her lover, an enchanted king who must go to a golden castle East o the Sun and West o the Moon (pictured above) to marry the one who¬†cursed him…unless the woman who loves him can break the spell in time.

As usual, this is available as journals, shirts and other items at Redbubble and Society6!

Here’s a second version I did for a Christmas ornament!

Check out all the cool things I saw at Art in the Wild!

From the adorable “pot o rocks” and cute sock critters to block prints and leather masks, Art in the Wild featured a whole gamut of creative beauty. Many of these artists and crafters will be at the Earth Day Art Crawl and I’m doing my best to get even more there! In the meantime, feel free to drool over these beautiful examples of local art:

Individual shots of the mandala, necklaces and flower print are the pieces I went home with. Sorry, you can’t have ’em! =D (Incidentally the cute white, pink and blue crocheted surface these items are resting on was created by my friend Jenny of Jenny’s Unique Crochet! It’s actually my favorite hat.)
