Flying Toad and a Magic Marble 

Watercolor with Gold leafing 

14.5 x 17.5 


Sometimes when I start a realistic painting, it turns into a fantasy image before I know what's going on. This sly toad started out posing for a dignified portrait but somewhere along the way, he grew a pair of wings. I turned my back for one moment, and the next thing I knew he had a magic red marble in his little hands. The painting is highlighted with flakes of genuine gold leafing.
