Fairy Bride Series?

This is the first Fairy Bride (late Nanette Fisher, co-founder of LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts). I hope to make a series for the upcoming Swamp Buddha Sumi-e Group show at the Brokaw-McDougal House here in Tallahassee. Does anyone have an old wedding photo/portrait of your mom? If you are willing to let me use it for my series, please scan the image at 300 dpi and email it to me. Thanks! (

I had submitted 10 holiday themed cards for sale at LeMoyne during their Art of Giving holiday sale: 2 poinsettias, 4 boy angel fairies and 4 girl angel fairies. Interestingly, only the girl angel fairies and 2 poinsettias were sold. Guess people don't want to buy images of boy angel fairies??
