The Last Unicorn & The Red Bull
I have finally finished my painting inspired by a book and movie I have loved since childhood - The Last Unicorn, by Peter S. Beagle. The absolutely stunningly animated film was released in the '80s, and it captured the heart of anyone who saw it, mine included. I have read the book several times, and I have watched the movie literally hundreds of times. I know it by heart, and it still moves me. So it was with trepidation, but honorable intentions, that I set out to create a painting inspired by The Last Unicorn. Now that I have finished it, I have to say, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
The Last Unicorn & The Red Bull, by Sarah Chisholm, 2014
I had the honour of meeting the author, Peter S. Beagle, in the spring of this year. He was touring Canadian theatres with a screening of the movie, and book signing and talk. He was funny, and sweet, and very down-to-earth. It was truly one of the best days of my life, getting to watch my favourite movie with my own daughter, and the author! I have a few mementos from that day, and I very much enjoyed talking to Mr. Beagle personally, but I was disappointed in myself that I did not have this painting done to show him at that time. It just wasn't ready, though it was on the go. I really hope he sees my painting one day. He is now touring the USA and select theatres, so if you have a chance, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you go! Check out The Last Unicorn Facebook Page for tour dates.

WOW and thanks to Joss Burnell for pointing me in this direction. I wrote a post on a lovely unicorn story -http://growingyoungereachday.wordpress.com/2012/03/28/unicorns-do-exist/. I think you might enjoy it.
Just fabulous in all its fantasy and finery. A lovely foreground, gems embedded there. Reflections on your favorite shoreline motifs are definitely a presence here !
