Announcement   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!

WOW! Excellent experience. The item was shipped super fast, it looks amazing, and I received it with awesome extra touches that I didn't even order (a card, a coupon). 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend.

Wow! This card is gorgeous! But not only that--the love she put in to the packaging was phenomenal! I've been buying off of Etsy for a long time and I've never received such beautiful packaging, attention to details and extra gifts! Just having a piece of her artwork was enough for me but the extra touches felt so special. Thank you so much for that little package of sunshine!

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 halthegal2 on instagram, @halthegal on twitter, and my facebook page 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!
