“The Fairest of the Seasons”
inspired by Nico’s rendition of “The Fairest of the Seasons”
“now that it’s time
now that the hour hand has landed at the end
now that it’s real
now that the dreams have given all they had to lend
i want to know
do i stay or do i go
and maybe try another time
and do i really have a hand in my forgetting?”
I drew this over 2 years ago when i was pregnant with Karl and have finally put some color to it. Music always inspires me, but here are some of the pictures that i kept on hand for visual inspiration:

Hans Memling

David Bowie
Utamaro {he was also the primary inspiration for my Floating World Series.}
Edward Burne-Jones “Beguiling of Merlin”
 Stylish Dress Book {a book of japanese patterns}
if you’ve never heard Nico, you’re in for a treat. Some people think she sounds like a german computer, but i like her voice… and so yes maybe she does sound like a lady version of HAL, but it’s still great!
