The “Exquisite Doodle” Artist Project, Post 16

that little creature in the tree…
“Starlight Serenade,” for Lisa Kaser

For the cover image of Lisa’s box I was inspired by her own artwork.  Lisa has a way of stripping an illustration down to the bare essentials:  color, humor, and real feelings.  I painted a little creature clinging in a state of bliss to a tree as stars dance and sing overhead.  The painting kept transforming every time I would work on it, and in the end it strikes me as if the trees themselves seem to be moving around like snails, something I thought Lisa could appreciate.

The little guy in the tree.
The outside...
and looking inside.
The way the scroll starts...
and ends.
