Realizing it has been almost six years since graduating college and fully committing to paper art, I decided it was time to recreate the very first piece I made seriously back in school.
A little larger this time at 16×12″ I wanted to focus on new techniques I had learned since my first try. Breathing new life into this magical forest meant new brighter colors, added details (that vine-work!), and a new vision of the little explorer herself (a little older this time too). This recreation is also framed not by me with a hope and a prayer, but my local framing expert using beautiful cherry wood and Museum-grade glass.
