Fredeline and Her Cello






This one just feels so special. Fredeline endows this series and its world with so much of its heart and its meaning. I had meant to have this drawing done for her birthday, April 30, but it didn't pan out. I think I made the cello a wee bit, well, wee, but I don't care. I am in love with this drawing.

Excerpt from The Undine Isles: 

"Oh, Maristela
," Fredeline said. "J’ai lui dit que je joue, et elle a l’achèté pour moi — ce jour là, en fait. Elle m’aime. Au moins, Teresita dit. Granmè, elle a désirée pour me devenir une infirmière, mais j’ai adoré la musique. Le violoncelle, il me donne de la joie. J’espérais que si je maîtrise, je pourrais apporter de la joie aux autres, aussi, mais je n’ai apporté pas la joie à personne jusqu’à ce que je suis venu à les Iles Ondines.” She looked up a little bit mistily, as if she'd said too much.
