"Z" is for Zenith - A to Z Challenge

"Stormy Skies" ©Mary Montague Sikes
Today is the last day of the A to Z Blog Challenge 2015, so I feel a little sad. It's been fun and productive for the heroine of my new book, Evening of the Dragonfly, to create an art show to go along with book signings. For Farrah Ferand, this exhibition will be the zenith of her young art career. She hopes there will be many more zeniths yet to come.

"Stormy Skies" is the last of 19 new paintings produced for Farrah's show, "The Awakening". It is a vibrant painting, full of life and new hope beneath a stormy sky, a symbol of her life in the past.

I hope the paintings created during the Challenge have inspired interest in Farrah Ferand and her story, Evening of the Dragonfly. During this month, I've learned a lot about Farrah that I didn't already know. I hope you've enjoyed following her art journey, but please note that the art on the book cover is mine, not Farrah's.

Today's painting, "Stormy Skies", is acrylic on stretched canvas, 36" x 18". It might be hung as part of a diptych.

Hi Monti - I've loved seeing your works ... and I hope we can see the whole sometime .. but the Diptych of Stormy Skies is lovely ... maybe I haven't been paying quite enough attention!
