done or made by stealth; secret or clandestine: a surreptitious glance.


Charlotte danced through the forest, her cape twirling out behind her.  This is an illustration I did for a children’s story I wrote.  She is a tree that comes a live.  I think I started the story with the image of a tree spirit dancing through the forest with leaves and branches spinning off behind her.  She is a birch tree, and her cape is made of birch bark.  I love the inspiration that comes from sitting in the forest and hearing the leaves twirling and falling all around me.
