Flights of Fancy


One of the challenges at Digital Whisper is to create a piece that is in the style of a wonderful artist (Maggie Taylor). This is my entry entitled "Baa Baa Black Sheep". A bit nursery rhyme a bit midwest fancy. Most of Taylor's work is vintage mixed with fanciful and somewhat surreal art elements. Credits for this piece go to deviantartscraps, wikimedia and Dover with Photoshop brushes and soft light effects

  7. There is something magical about this simple piece of work. I say simple because most of your work, in your own style is full of lots of detail, texture and softness. I am not familiar with Maggie Taylor's work but will check it out now. I am just sure you hit the mark on this one. Love this piece.

  15. I just spent time at Maggie Taylor's web site and I totally LOVE everything she makes. Her art is both contemporary and vintage with a touch of steampunk thrown in. You have captured her look magnificently. Awesome tribute to her art.

  17. I bet you think I'm a dork. I swear I thought I saw something other than the butterflies around the moon. Maybe it was blurry vision :>)

    I'm featuring Maggie Taylor's web site as my blog choice tomorrow (Oct 16). I am in LOVE with her art. Thank you for introducing her to me.
