She was one of my favorite pictures for a time. I attempted to do a pastel of her, approximately a metre long, by about 2/3 of a metre tall, but I lost it about midway. (Don't ask how I lost a piece of paper that big, but I did. She was supposed to be a nixie. (There's a fairy tale about a nixie in a millpond and she offers a treasure in exchange for the 'youngest thing' in a farmer's house. he presumes she wants one of the puppies or kittens, but of course, as must happen in all good fairy-tales, his wife has just given birth to their son, and of course adventures begin many years later, when the nixie claims the son, and his young wife goes off in search of him, getting help from fairy-folk along the way. stuff. Okay I give up, but if you want me to tell you a story in more detail, just e-mail me, it'll be fun, we'll have story time.
