A Hidden Secret No More

Once there was a girl who had a million wishes.
She kept them safe within a place where no one has ever been...

Now the gate has finally opened
And she welcomes you inside to meet

The Secret Society of the Wish Forest




They are only few of the hundreds lingering inside the gate of the forest.
Among the shadows you will also find thousands of tiny lights
creating wishes and dreams for all...

Upon Waiting

Sunset Rendezvous

To find your dreams and wishes, follow the tiny lights and enter the gate

Special note:

Thank you for taking time to see my little show and tell. I have been slowly and patiently working on these for quite some time and I can't tell you how happy I am to share them with you now. It's a wonderful feeling to finally open my new shop, and although I'm still pushing myself to list more art, you're welcome to visit and linger. Just to show how much I love all of you, I'm giving away a surprise free bonus of original ACEO with each purchase...AND... a set of surprise goodies for the first 20 buyers who purchase my art!

 You'll notice that I only have original art available in the shop, but you can still purchase prints of my previous work over at RedBubble.

I hope you enjoyed this little show as much as I did making them.

Amalia, oxx

    Take care. Rest!

  2. Ah Amalia....these are delightful and as usual, there is so much more beneath the initial first glance! I cannot pick a favorite~~they all evoke a different emotion!
    Love the frames against the deep blue background.
    A visual feast my dear! (especially for a woman who has spent half the day plumbing and needs some beauty right now!)
    Brava ♥
