The Awakening - Guest Heart Thursday

Even in the Sea there are stories of faeries and enchantment.  This drawing is from the tale of Sleeping Beauty as told by the Merfolk of the deepest Oceans.  (Ha, ha--No pun intended.) Since this is a story of love, of course, there are hearts hidden everywhere.  How many can YOU find?

For more heart art, photography and altogether fabulous heart stuff from around the world, visit Clytie at Random Hearts for Guest Heart Thursday.

Oh wow, its stunning... I love how they are wearing coats from a Jane Austen era. And I love the way their tails are entangled in each other, its so heart-skipping-a-beat beautiful. The patterns in the hair, there are hearts all over the picture... will you be coloring this?

I'm going to trust Dani on this one - I think my eyes may go buggy if I tried to count all those hearts. What a beautiful and powerful drawing - with so many hearts to find!

P.S. I found an artist who just started a blog - his name is Jon Gibson (yes, you know him) :=}.
He posted his first ACEO that he made this morning - after which he made 3 more, then said "You know, I'm HAPPY when I'm doing art."

Please visit him at

He needs the encouragement!
