Aelita and Jax by Aurella Aelita and Jax by Aurella
Size: 8 x 10"
Medium: Watercolor and Ink
eBay Link: [link]

This painting is based off of a character from one of my much older ACEO cards. Some of you may remember the duo of Aelita and Jax! I decided to do another painting featuring them because I love them so much. Aelita is a very beautiful witch who is part of the high witch and wizard elite. She is constantly concerned with presenting the proper image. Jax is her pink-winged cat who likes to play tricks (especially on Halloween!) which annoys Aelita to no end. But Aelita is never seen without her Jax.

I was influenced by an art style that I admire so much: Art Nouveau. I decided to create a very detailed background almost to mimic a wrought iron gate or fence. Can you find all the hidden images that I placed in the background? Then, also with the Art Nouveau style, I placed a circular border behind Aelita and Jax with a pumpkin patch and a green mosaic frame. Behind them within the circle is a spooky graveyard scene and a beautiful orange and purple sky!

This was probably my all time favorite piece to work on. I really hope that you all enjoy it! =)

Thank you so much!! This is definitely the piece that took me the longest to create. It took about a week's worth of work. The border took forever!! I'm glad you like it! :hug:
