Hill Castle Original Oil Pastel Fantasy Painting

Hill Castle Original Oil Pastel Fantasy Painting


A bright fairytale-like artwork freshly painted in oil pastels over gouache straight from imagination.

The size is approximately 20 x 25 cm (10 x 8 inches).

Images like this appear in my head and sometime I manage to capture them.

Stone Bullet one of the kind necklace with a Belemnite and a Button

Stone Bullet one of the kind necklace with a Belemnite and a Button 

This is one of a kind necklace.
The lenth of the necklace is about 36 cm (14 inches). The Belemnite is from Norfolk, UK.
Belemnitida (commonly referred to as belemnites) is an extinct order of cephalopods which existed during the Mesozoic era, from the Hettangian age of the Lower Jurassic to the Maastrichtian age of the Upper Cretaceous.


This is a part of my Gypsy Mermaid collection, which is all about uncharted seas, empty beaches, pebbles, driftwood, and even mysterious water-polished remnants of long gone civilizations. Something for an "inner mermaid": original, natural and wild.
