1. "Horse Love" by Linda T Snider-Ward, Louisiana artist

Horse Love is painted from my reference photos after attending a horse show nearby. This sweet little girl seemed to have such a connection with her horse. The painting turned out a bit too sweet, but I enjoyed painting it. More of my artwork can be seen on my website and my Etsy shop

2. असुरक्षित महिलाएं

असुरक्षित महिलाएं

असुरक्षित महिलाएं

दिल्ली में  भरे बाजार सरे आम एक लडकी को चाकू से जान से मार दिया जाता है . लेकिन मुद्दा उठाया गया दो दिन बाद … शायद इसलिए कि मीडिया ने मुद्दा उठाया. वही राजनीति होनी शुरु हो गई. सभी पार्टियां एक दूसरे पर आरोप प्रत्यारोप लगा रही हैं और तो और आपस मे ही लड भिड रही हैं … जिसे देख कर शर्म से सिर झुका जा रहा है.

मीनाक्षी हत्याकांड मामले में दिल्ली सरकार ने दो दिन में पुलिस से रिपोर्ट मांगी है। ये रिपोर्ट पांच 19 साल की इस युवती की की शुक्रवार को चाकूओं से गोद कर सरेआम हत्या कर दी गई थी।

मामले में दिल्ली के गृह विभाग के मंत्री सत्येंद्र जैन ने पुलिस आयुक्त बी.एस. बस्सी को पत्र लिखा है और मामले में दो रिपोर्ट रिपोर्ट करने के आदेश दिए हैं। उधर देर शाम मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल व उप मुख्यमंत्री मनीष सिसोदिया ने पीडि़त परिवार से मुलाकात की।

पुलिस आयुक्त को लिखे पत्र में बताया है कि परिवार ने आरोपी जय प्रकाश पर इस मामले में 2013 से परेशान करने बात कही है और इस वजह से वजह खुद को प्रताडि़त महसूस कर रही थी। इसके बाद भी पुलिस द्वारा कोई मामला दर्ज नहीं किया गया है। पुलिस आयुक्त का कहा गया है कि यदि कोई ऐसा अपराध सामने आता है तो उस संबंध में तत्काल कदम उठाने की जरुरत है लेकिन इस मामले में ऐसी पहल नहीं की गई। इसलिए पूरे मामले में पांच बिदुंओं पर विस्तृत जांच करने की आवश्यकता है।

Stalker stabs girl to death in central Delhi market 427254

उसकी गलती इतनी थी कि पहली बार छेड़छाड़ करने के आरोप में वह उठ खड़ी हुई थी और उसने पुलिस में शिकायत की थी। मीनाक्षी ने आरोप लगाया था कि मां की शह पर दोनों भाई उससे छेड़खानी करते हैं। इसके बाद पुलिस ने मां-बेटों को हिरासत में लिया था।

इसी का बदला लेने के लिए तीनों ने मीनाक्षी को बीच राह रोककर चाकू से हमला कर दिया। दोनों भाइयों ने लड़की पर चाकू से 35 बार वार किया। बेटी को बचाने आई मां पर भी आरोपियों ने चाकू से हमला किया। हत्या के आरोप में जयप्रकाश उर्फ सन्नी को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया है।

प्रत्‍यक्षदर्शियों ने बताया कि ईलू और उसकी मां ने मीनाक्षी के बाल पकड़ते हुए उसकी कलाई मोड़ दी। इससे पहले कि पड़ोसी बीच-बचाव कर पाते सन्‍नी ने मीनाक्षी पर चाकुओं से हमला कर दिया। पुलिस ने बताया कि गुरुवार शाम 7.45 बजे एक लड़की और उसकी मां पर चाकू से हमले की जानकारी मिली थी।

मौके पर पहुंचने पर पता चला‍ कि लड़की और उसकी मां को राम मनोहर लोहिया अस्पताल में भर्ती कराया गया है। लड़की बेहोशी की हालत में थी, इसके चलते उसके बयान नहीं हो सके। बाद में गुरुवार देर रात ही लड़की की इलाज के दौरान मौत हो गई। इस मामले में पुलिस ने आरोपियों के खिलाफ आईपीसी की धारा 302 और 324 के तहत मामला दर्ज किया। Read more…

3. throwback...

"moonlight mavens"
11x14 acrylic on canvas
to one year ago yesterday...and this painting, "moonlight mavens".

hard to believe this piece (and the newly designed website, by me) are exactly one year old! how do i know this? it was website renewal fee day yesterday (squarespace is awesome, by the way)....and, i have a memory like an elephant. ;)

here's the story behind this painting as well as a bit more about me (in case you didn't already know)...

{and, just because it's throwback thursday, well i thought i'd share a picture of a very small Nicole with lots of dreams behind those big brown eyes of being the bestest children's artist she could be! :)}

a little Nicole...circa. 1975/76

4. a woman after my own heart....

"ribbons undone"
©the enchanted easel 
for sure!

this little treasury is everything. anyone who curates a treasury based on Tori Amos songs, well that's someone i just instantly have to show some love for! and, including MY tribute painting to Tori? happy...and humbled. :)

this painting form last year, entitled "ribbons undone" (named after the Tori song of the same name, of course) is one of my favorites. visit my etsy shop to purchase a print of her or a cute little compact mirror (only ONE left...) . also, over at fine art america, you can purchase this piece on a multitude of awesome products....from tote bags to duvet covers.

and, just because we are talking about Tori here, well here's the inspiration for this piece....:)

5. meet Flora....

flora~original drawing
7x9 graphite on bristol
©the enchanted easel 2015
the first in a series of three summer/flower girls i will be releasing FOR SALE this summer.

*NOTE~this is an ORIGINAL DRAWING not a print. i will not be selling prints until the original drawing is sold. you can find here FOR SALE here.

also, in my etsy shop, i have three winter girls (ORIGINAL DRAWINGS) available. try not to be biased but they are my favorite. well of course they are, they represent WINTER...one of my obsessions (because God knows i have a few of those...;) )

ok, back to business.....i have also added share buttons to the images here in my blog. i have been trying to add pinterest buttons to the gallery images on my site but due to the format (carousel) i have the images displayed in, well that's the only format in which the pinterest buttons do not want to play nice. kind of stuck on the carousel format so i apologize for the lack of ease in sharing any images you may love on my site onto your pinterest pages. please feel free to share from my blog here though...if the mood strikes you. always remember, ALL of my images belong solely to ME. NONE of them are to be reproduced by anyone but myself. i see lots of artists have their hard work taken by others unknowingly and popping up all over the internet without consent/permission. so wrong but don't get me started....

so now that Flora has made her little debut this first full week of summer (thank you God for the gift of air conditioning....) her lovely little friends, Camillia and Blossom will be following...soon! :)

icelyn~orignal drawing
graphite on bristol
©the enchanted easel 2015
sweet, little Icelyn. 

this is the third (and final) drawing in my series of three whimsical winter girls. i know, i know....it's almost spring (ugh!) but custom work always comes first and i've had a few of those *jobs*the last couple of weeks (no complaints-love custom work) so little Icleyn here had to take a back seat. but....

she's DONE (yay me!) and FOR SALE here along with her two lovely companions...little miss Crystal and my personal favorite, little miss Glacia (love the happy little twisted pout on her...).

although i shall bid my love, mr. winter, adieu in a few days, it will eternally be winter in my heart...(hey look, someone has to show some love for that season...and well, i have MAJ love for it!)

{up next on the easel (and between other drawings)...custom nursery art...featuring an owl and some sweet little birds.}

14. a little something special...

for jeni
©the enchanted easel 2015
for someone special.

this is a custom drawing for a friend from high school who has been battling endocrine cancer for a while now. this girl is a FIGHTER! nothing keeps her down. she always has a smile on her face no matter how tough her days are at times. so...

between her love of gerbera daisies and her ability to rock that zebra print well, i wanted to bring an extra smile to her beautiful face.

always thinking positive thoughts and lifting prayers for this special girl. may you continue to fight the fight and rock that zebra, jeni! :)

20. she's leaving home

 I really am awful at finishing a story off. This one has been going one for nearly six months and it still hasn't come to a conclusion. I can never deal with endings. I wonder what deep psychological scar I'm avoiding looking at? Hmmm. But, that's another post, another drawing, hey, another book!
So, when we last caught up with my bookbench, my girl, she was finished - all apart from a little colour that I added, and a few more doodles. Less is never more around here. Why stop when you can just keep on going and going? (Go Sober For October really is making me look at my addictive behaviour, it seems).
When I'd thrown as much colour and doodles at her, it needed to be finished with a coat of hardcore resin/varnish. That bit was done at 2am the night/morning before she was being picked up. It was meant to have been done four days before (I didn't realise that until 2am when I finally read the tin) but, shhhh, don't tell anyone. And, anyway, I couldn't have lived with the small of that resin for four days. I'd have been as high as a kite.
And then they came to take her away. After a rather undignified exit from my house which included a door being removed and a washing line being snapped - she just didn't want to leave - she was off.
 After dominating my living room for the past few months she suddenly looked so small. She looked tiny, out there, in the big wide world (car park). Aw.
 She was carefully and lovingly wrapped then bundled into the back of a van and off to find her new home in the big city. In the Big Smoke.
 Well, not quite. Because, yes, she did make her home in London, for the summer, but it was in a rather lovely, green, little churchyard in Greenwich. I even got to go and visit her.
 And, not just once, but twice. Yesterday, I went to say a final farewell, as all of the fifty bookbenches were gathered together in Gordon Square, London, before they go on auction and onto the next chapter of their lives. Lots of people came out to see them in all their glory, on a perfect autumn afternoon.
 And, so, that's it. This evening they will all be auctioned of to raise much needed funds for the National Literacy Trust.
 Unfortunately, I won't be able to make the auction, but I hope she goes to a good home. Bye Bye bookbench.
THE END
(or is it? Maybe, I'll get to visit her in her new home, where ever that may be)
