Life is a journey & we meet people along the way who inspire us and change our lives... I met one of those people many years ago when Nancy Duncan joined Early Work Mercantile. She was a wonderful, magical artist who worked in different mediums to create enchanting dolls and fiber art pieces. Her creations were always unique and her imagination was a true gift. She also had a true gift for storytelling and she created an earthy and bewitching blog in which she wrote about herbs and healing during her favorite period of time ...the colonial era.(my favorite too!)
Before Nancy left Early Work Mercantile, she asked me to paint a portrait of how I see her main blog character...Imagination Prymm. I was honored and thrilled but also hesitant to try because she created this character and I didn't know if I would portray her as she saw her in her mind. Nancy was so sweet and reassuring and gave me the inspiration and encouragement that I needed to put Goody Prymm on canvas.
