Hongxia's Quest: Make today someone's lucky day.
Suggestion: Leave a dollar where only a child will find it. Imagine how excited and lucky you will make that child feel.
What fun it is to think about doing this quest! I even enjoy finding nickels and dimes, but finding the green stuff… now that's fun! I think I might go to a park and tape it up at the top of a slippery slide, maybe I'll even do it a few different places throughout this next week. I can feel my inner child giggle just thinking about it… and who doesn't have a few extra dollars for that kind of fun?
The art on this card was created by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, a woman that's very well known in the fantasy art world. We were lucky enough to commission her to illustrate 6 original angels just for Angel Quest. Her work has a distinctive, soft, fluid feel. Each of her paintings are imbued with a subtle palette of colors that glide and twirl ones eyes through the composition like a beautiful dance across the floor.
Please visit Stephanie's website and peruse her elegant art. I promise you won't be disappointed!
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law has been painting fantastic otherworlds from
early childhood, though her art career did not begin until 1998 when
she graduated from a program of Computer Science. After three years of
programming for a software company by day and rushing home to paint
into the midnight hours, she left the world of typed logic and numbers,
for painted worlds of dreams and the fae.
Her illustrations have been for various game and publishing
clients, including Wizards of the Coast, HarperCollins, LUNA Books,
Tachyon Books, Alderac Entertainment, and Green Ronin. In addition to
the commissioned projects, she has spent a great deal of time working
up a personal body of work whose inspiration stems from mythology,
legend, and folklore. She has also been greatly influenced by the art
of the Impressionists, Pre-Raphaelites, Surrealists, and the master
hand of Nature. Swirling echoes of sinuous oak branches, watermarked
leaf stains, the endless palette of the skies are her signature. Her
background of over a decade as a flamenco dancer is also evident in the
movement and composition of her paintings. Every aspect of her
paintings moves in a choreographed flow, and the dancers are not only
those with human limbs. What Stephanie tries to convey with her art is
not simply fantasy, but the fantastic, the sense of wonder, that which
While most of Stephanie's work is done with watercolors, she
experiments with pen & ink, intaglio printing, acrylic, and digital
painting as well.
