Glimpse of Summer by enayla Glimpse of Summer by enayla
I've spent a lot of time in a cabin this summer, with my cat, in the sun or in the rain - watching dragonflies crawl out of their former shells and stalking frogs through the woods. It has been lovely. Then I came home, got sick (awful, awful cold) and sat down and painted this. It's a self portrait of sorts. That's me, that's my cat, and that's what summer FELT like.

I'm most happy with the fact that my feet look like the monkey feet they are - they're the most 'me' part of the picture, save for the maniac grin.

PLEASE look at the full view, the image isn't made justice in small format.

A couple of close ups on my face and Azrael's face.

I love all of your work, some more than others. They, even the sad ones, are beautiful...they make me pensive and just a little melancholy, then all of a sudden there is this one...my favorite, it made me grin (maniacal or not) with you atop your trusty steed.
