Touch Up

My Twilight Pixie painting was featured in a treasury today, and I had one of those “oh, it’s still there?!?!” moments. It’s been hanging in my bedroom and I kept meaning to do some touch up painting on it and make it look better (because, well, honestly it looked pretty bad, but was great for…
