Penelope and Pete

People often ask me which one of my pieces is my favorite, and my (probably somewhat useless) answer is always, "my latest one". I just finished this piece, Penelope and Pete, today, after a weeklong struggle with the original sketch.

After the journey, I'm so happy with where I landed, here with Penelope, a mermaid, and her seabird, Pete. Penelope is a big fan of human jewels and wearable treasures, and Pete is her best pal with a talent for scavenging the loveliest of accessories.
