Summerwing and Old Midsummer 2012!


It's nearly June, and with it comes the summer solstice! I'm excited to present my 2012 collection of midsummer magic with flirty expressions of summer and shimmer-winged creatures. 

This will mark my fourth year running for both dragonfly and butterfly creations along with Psyche, butterfly goddess of the soul. Two new offerings, a cicada and some dragon wings, join the fireflies, bees, moths, dragonflies, butterflies, and phoenix. Eleven blessed Moon Spirits are also part of this release. Enjoy

I do not know whether I was a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man. —Chuang Tzu

Green Buddhas
on the fruit stand.
We eat the smile
And spit out the teeth.
—Charles Simic




My eyes traverse the night sky,

Emulating the moon in its isolation.
Blessed.

Summer Sneak Previews!

I'm very excited to release my Summer 2012 series, which consists of new work and reinterpretations of the winged creatures that emerge in my work just before each summer solstice. Psyche comes back for a fourth summer with her symbols of metamorphosis.

Old Midsummer, Heliolatry, winged creatures old and new, flirty summer earrings, and a subseries of Moon Spirits will hit my shop either Tuesday or Wednesday morning! I'll make a Facebook announcement once I know for certain which day it will be; it all depends on my Etsy upload times!

Here are previews of Solstice Dance, Madame Lalinn the moon spirit, Dragonfly Muse, DragonWings, and Blue Morpho.
