I love how you interpret these characters. Arya looks sweet here, but with an underlying power and independence, too.

the second one always takes the longest to read.
when i finished 'Dance', i was all like "damn, i just spent over five (theoretical) years living these people's lives"

The books are so damn interesting! I just imagined Arya something like this (maybe a bit longer face but this is definitely it! )

   Yes!       :-)

This is enchanting, Jeni.
  You have continued straight on from the feel and tone of the Nineteenth century book illustrators.

Inspiring to my eyes.

With warmth,

Terry

This stream of inspiration shines through your works, Jeni.

It is only fair to to tell you that each time I see this work within my favorites gallery it makes me smile.

I like that you can see who she will grow into and that she can't wait to get there.  She walks like an Aries; her upper body leans forward as she goes with a set determination to advance into her life.

It's a wonderfully crafted piece that rewards regular revisits.

With warm regard,

Terry

I got mine from Amazon, but even here, I can find it in book stores (I am in Ecuador). It`s here, and you can see other options (paperback editions). [link] I am currently on pg 270 of ADWD.

You're welcome :)
And I was planning on reading them, I just have so many things to do this year that I seldom read, unfortunately. But in six months I graduate and then I'll make up for that.. :)
