Destiny Fairy Mixed Media

With so much to do before the start of my first week of my return to teaching upon me, I'm surprised I let myself spend the day in my studio yesterday. But I really felt the need to get in there and be creative. I wasn't sure what I was going to create (I seldom am), but I ended up creating this Destiny Fairy in mixed media painting.

I used a combination of acrylics, Neocolor II crayons, and colored pencils. And the stars were stenciled on. I found the quote online, and it seems to be attributed to Shakespeare. I liked it so I added it to my painting. And hey, I didn't do pink hair this time. LOL. She seemed to need blue hair for a change. 

It is not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves.
