Announcement   *Summer SALE!!* for a limited time: just purchase $20 worth of items (bookmarks, prints, cards, whatever!) and in the notes let me know which FAERIE TALE FEET BOOMARK you want for FREE!! choose from pride & prejudice, the hobbit, sherlock holmes, mary poppins, the princess & the pea, or the little mermaid!! :D happy shopping & happy colorful summer reading!!

*

it's art for the reading home. it's a bit of happy colors, favorite stories, and lots of adventurous details. it's a way to expand your shoe collection without running out of closet space.

each piece of the faerie tale feet series is an original gouache painting that harkens back to the original source material, embellishing the little things that have made these heroines & adventurers who they actually are & who they have become by the last page of the tome.

the backgrounds are full of icons from the original tales-- there always seems to be something more to see!

and why feet? you can tell a lot about a person by his or her posture. and you can tell a lot about a character by his or her shoes. i've painted just the feet in this series so that YOU can step into the story for yourself.

but also be sure you live your own adventure.
& make sure you're wearing the right pair of shoes.

peace, love, & colour to you!

SHIPPING NOTE: i custom make boxes to fit what i'm mailing you. so if your shipping fee for multiple items is outrageous, it's because etsy thinks i'm mailing you eight separate boxes... ;D SO, please note: i refund you what it doesn't actually cost me to mail you your stuff once it's shipped! <3 thanks for your patience!

in addition to the faerie tale feet limited edition signed prints and greeting cards, some of the original gouache paintings are for sale; let me know which one(s) you're interested in and i'll let you know if it's still available. originals vary in price, but are in the $400-650 range, framed, plus $30 for safe shipping.

About

halthegal exists to make the world a briter place. imbuing soul and spirit with the joy of colour & story.

a navy brat by birth (guam, to be specific), i have the itch to travel incessantly when i'm not home & cozy with a book or an in-progress painting. {& forget about getting me out of the house if it's raining. unless it's to a bookstore. maybe.}

i studied illustration at the savannah college of art and design, illustrated a dozen books or so, worked at numerous book stores {good bye, paycheck!}, and now just make my own art based on my favourite things: stories. and shoes.

i fell in love with painting in gouache in a materials & techniques class & haven't looked back since. such rich hues and brite colours. yum.

books and stories and the common vernacular of life in pictures is what propels my work.
that & coffee.
& sometimes a cookie.
or few. oh, and a chocolate cupcake on friday nights. that's a thing, right?

enjoy the faerie tale feet series.
more are ever in progress, so be sure to follow @halthegal_storyart on instagram, @halthegal on twitter, and my facebook page (facebook.com/halthegal) for photos of progress on the most recent additions forthcoming in the series!

and if you want to see progress on EACH and EVERY faerie tale feet painting, as well as read about the iconography, etc., check out www.halthegal.wordpress.com
so much fun!!

peace, love, & colour to you!
