Curious Art on A Word A Day!

I'm thrilled to be featured all this week on the wonderful vocabulary/ etymology site A Word A Day! I'll be illustrating each word with a "curiotype" (figurative letter) initial on a background of dictionary text.

This is for today's word, "redolent."
Acrylic on text on canvas, 6"x6"

Prints & original will be available in my brand-spankin'-new Etsy shop!!!

I found you via a word a day. I'm glad that you may be getting more exposure from that.

I am loving poking around on your blogs. Such vision, dark and fun and of course fantastical.

The letters remind me of when my daughters learned the alphabet in their school. They learned many letters by drawing them into animal or nature images.

GREAT STUFF!!! I will add you to my blogroll. I'm quite taken with your work.

Congrats!

One of the greatest gifts I have ever received from AWAD is going to be finding your work, Leah. God bless you, and thanks for the thinking you provoke in a world that refuses to think anymore.
