I’m finding myself really attracted to gnomes lately. I think it’s because we’re surrounded by some pretty wet, mossy, green forest where we’re living in Maple Falls, Washington.

When I go on hikes through the woods, I think about trolls, gnomes and fairies because it’s just that kind of forest. You can’t help but think about magical beings living in the enchanted forest.

I’ve been a big fan of gnomes since I was in my teens and I have this really great gnome book that I got in about 1977.

It’s one of my favorite books from when I was young. It’s about the life of gnomes. It’s pretty cute!

So the art I created for the Twitter art exhibit is a Gnome.

I’ve titled it “Spreading Enormous Joy under the Moon.” It’s acrylic on thick, postcard size, fine art paper.
