Space Queen and is my very first space themed painting. I have started placing my artwork in Fantasy / Sci fi Conventions, so I wanted to do a series of space related pieces. I plan on doing many more and already have 2 more sketched out. My next is going to be a mermaid & space combination.

Book Info Page. My very first book... Fantasy & Fairy Tales: The Art of Julia Finucane.
Fantasy & Fairy Tales: The Art of Julia Finucane is a great book to add to any collection. Written & illustrated by me, this art book is near and dear to my heart.
Debuting my latest painting, Crystal Ball Fairy. This is the first time anyone is seeing this image. Featuring also a step-by-step quide on how to create a fantasy painting, one can learn different artistic techniques and experiment with painting on there own. Book also includes a Fantasy art section with many of my pieces of artwork. In Full color, these images are clear, crisp, and are of the highest quality.
This book is not only a great tutorial book, it is also a portfolio style book. It is like owning multiple art prints, all in one package. With each painting image, are lovely descriptions about the inspiration and process taken in creating the paintings.
With 67 pages of information and full color images, this book is for any fantasy, fairytale, or art lover. For children and adults alike. The book also features an About the Artist section which tells a little about who I am as a person and artist.

I wanted to share my latest Works in Progress (WIP) painting that I am currently working on.
The painting is space themed and will be titled "Space Queen." Done in acrylic paints on 8" x 10" canvas board, it is my first space / sci fi piece.
Always being fascinated with stars, planets, and outer space; I am excited about my new space series of paintings.
Space and other art prints available in the art sale section on this website.
Like every artwork I create, I started out with a rough sketch and idea. That sketch became a final sketch which I then transfered onto the canvas.
I then painted the first layer of the background and started the dress.
I hope to have this finished within a few days and will post more updates soon.
