I’ve been making these little miniature paintings inspired by my writing for the past week because working on larger formats is still just too painful for me at the moment; I’ve broken my shoulder a while ago.
Well anyway, my doctor says that I have another couple of months to go before everything is back to normal, so I’ve made a plan. Until I can make larger drawings, I’ve decided to focus on the book I’ve just finished writing, and in order to promote it I will be making one miniature painting a day inspired by each scene in the book.
These little paintings have been inspired by a short story that used to be in the book. Its title is The Children of Firbreac, and it’s divided into two parts. Next week I will start my 100 day project, so from then on you can get an idea of the book and how the story unfolds. But I won’t be giving too much away, as I’m still looking for an agent to guide me through the publishing business, and to help me find a proper publisher to get the written version out there for you to read. There are approximately a hundred scenes so that’s at least a hundred posts for you to see.
The book is written for 18 to 30 year-olds, and has challenging themes which I hope to tell you more about as time passes. Anyway, all your comments will be much appreciated, so please use the comments bar below, and I will answer any questions or comments left there.
And to answer the first possible question you might have: Yes, The Children of Firbreac is loosely based on the Irish legend, The Children of Lir, but doesn’t have much to do with the actual book hence the reason for editing it out.
I hope you enjoy the (picture) story.
