30 Paintings in 30 Days: Playing Catch Up

These last few days have been pretty busy. With Labor Day weekend being a long one for my husband and I since he's given a long weekend we had friends come to stay and hit up the renaissance fair, and were pretty busy playing host. 

In spite of all this I did still manage to get a painting done a day and post them over on my instagram feed, but since the only space we have for guests is my studio I have been unable to get to my scanner or computer without getting in their way. 

So without much further ado here are the pieces that I have neglected to post these last few days.

"Horkalumps". Watercolors on Bristol at 5 x 7 inches. Horkalumps look like pink mushrooms covered in spiny hairs, and are notorious garden breeders. They use their roots to seek out earthworm, which they eat. Horkalumps are native to Scandinavia, but have spread through out most of Europe.

"Kneazle". Watercolors on Bristol at 5 x 7 inches. The Kneazle is described as a small, intelligent, independent, somewhat aggressive cat like creature that makes an excellent pet or familiar to any witch or wizard.

"Streeler". Watercolors on Bristol at 7 x 5 inches. The Streeler is a Native of Africa and it is a giant, color changing snail. The venom it secretes is so venomous that it kills off  all vegetation it passes, and is also one of the few things known to kill off rampant Horkalump growth.

"Glumbumble". Watercolors on Bristol at 5 x 7 inches. A European bee that produces a melancholy-inducing substance which is used to treat hysteria. These bees cause havoc on normal honey bee populations if they mix into their hives.

"Diricawl". Watercolors on Bristol at 5 x 7 inches. More commonly known to muggles as the Dodo, this bird has the ability to apparate, which makes it easy to escape from stressful situations. Because of this trait, it is common knowledge to the muggle scientific community that these small, flightless birds are extinct.

"Salamander" watercolors on Bristol at 5 x 7 inches. This little guy is a small fire lizard that feeds on flame, and will only survive for as long as his food source is kept alive and roaring. They are used for their magical restorative abilities, much like the Pheonix is used.

"Mermaid" watercolors on Bristol at 5 x 7 inches. Merpeople thrive all over the world and vary in appearance as much as humans do. All merfolk have a fondness for music, and while we know they exist in as a complex society, little is known about their culture.

As always the above pieces are available for purchase via katguevara@ymail.com

With that being said and these art pieces being posted, I will be MIA the next few days but will continue to post my daily paintings via my instagram account. For anyone in the Cincinnati area I will be at comic con this weekend. More to come on that account before the actual weekend though, so ta ta for now!
