The Star's Daughter by Joan of Art

The Star's Daughter
by Joan of Art

Prompt: The Star's Daughter
prompted by: Jenny Heidewald, during Sketch Fest #33 (February, 2013)

Oil pastel on sandpaper 9"x11"


Mayumi Ogihara says: Lovely work! Your drawings are very beautiful! ~ Reply?

     Joan of Art replied to this: Thank you Mayumi. Your name in our country means beautiful and graceful, exactly how the young lady in this picture should be. Are you from the same country? :-)
     Mayumi Ogihara replied to this: Wow, is there a word "mayumi"? I'm Japanese. My name is written as 真由美 in Japanese, and the meaning of the three characters are; truth, freedom and beauty ;)
     Joan of Art replied to this: Yes, Mayumi, and I thought all the while you are half Filipina and half Japanese :)

Jenny Heidewald says: Ooo, this is beautiful! I never thought of using oil pastel on sand paper, though I know of using regular pastels on it (the special sanded pastel paper). Thanks for doing my prompt! ~ Reply?

     Joan of Art replied to this: You are welcome and thank you too, Jenny! :-)
