The reason I chose the title for this piece is that Ariel against this improbable backdrop invites the viewer to dream the impossible.

I created this piece as an experiment in techniques, using a palette knife & pen and ink.

My inspiration in creating this piece is actually the Disney film Tron. Aesthetically there is a strong difference in my interpretation, but I was fascinated with the idea that a computer construct could exist where anything is possible. There is a place where a sun won't cast light, a silhouette can be white, and water moves like gas.

My name is Raechyl - welcome to my shop! I see the world through fantasy and story, and believe the best art always comes from a place deep inside. Art must inspire emotion, and the more I paint, the more the human face pulls me. There is such beauty and expression in a face. Most of my paintings begin with textured and stained background. These backgrounds are expressive, and I usually don't have an and result in mind. When I look at a completed background, I rifle through images in my head that I've been meaning to paint until one just feels right. It is this process (or perhaps, lack of process?) that I believe accounts for my best work. If it was meant to be, it will happen! I was born in San Diego, and still lives there, though she dreams of someday moving back to London, where I studied for three years.
