Looks a bit different in every lighting situation. 20 hours or so of researching, preliminary sketching, painting and troubleshooting. I always seem to finish right before I can’t look at a piece anymore. Now back to work, homework, job hunting and night classes!

oakland-based artist elise creates beautifully-painted nature themes … and i’m in love. the top image reminds me of looking up through the pines at the stars while camping. and the lower image has a more earthbound — but still star-gazing — feel.

“This present suite of works were likely commissioned from Edmund Dulac by the Berwind-White Coal Mining Company of Pittsburg. Engravings were made after these original works and used in a 1922 calendar that the company likely gave to their customers. They were packaged in a box with blue satin ribbon and a Dulac zodiac design in brown and gilt on tan.
The calendars are still regarded as the rarest item of Dulac material.”
