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.
