The Doormouse by WildWoodArtsCo The Doormouse by WildWoodArtsCo
Oh No! not another mouse! But this is no ordinary mouse. This is a Doormouse. All the best establishments have a doorman (or woman) and Faerie is no exception. The Doormouse guards the smallest of doorways into Fae. The cracks in stone walls, the holes in tree stumps, those little gaps in hedgerows - it's the Doormouse's job to make sure only those humans who believe find their way through.

Original is 7x8.5 inches in watercolour on 140lb hot-pressed paper.

I've created a tutorial for this piece here --> [link]

I can't imagine it not being published...
Though I do agree, I hope it gets published.

Good luck completing it!

If it does get published, what will you call the book?

Thank you! I hope so too. It's a project I've been researching and working on for a long time.

It's called 'Herbarium Intermundia' and it's the story of 5 explorers/artists/botanists who find their way into Faeryland.

I had no idea you'd received a DD for this- but it is no surprise at all! Well deserved!:clap: I love everything about this piece- the lighting, the lovely textures and your superb skill with color and design. I love his little costume...makes me want to sculpt a little doormouse faerie-doorman.... You've deffinitely taken your work to the next level with this piece, Shona. I can't stop looking at this...I truly wish I owned this one dear.
