Artist Abigail Larson at Steampunk World's Fair

Spent the weekend discovering new artists at the Steampunk World's Fair. These artists ranged from pen & ink, to leather artists, creators of costumes, and creatures of all mediums.

One of my favorite finds of the day was pen & ink watercolor artist, Abigail Larson. These hauntingly beautiful pieces depicted ghouls, ghosts, and things that go bump in the night. Her use of color, both dark and light, brings a spooky yet soulful feel to her art. It's the kind of art you keep coming back to stare at to find out where the emotion of the piece will take you. Innocent, expressive, and melancholy at the same time, the passion of the artist shows in each beautifully poignant piece.

We purchased two unframed prints on Saturday and when we went back Sunday we found this Edgar Allen Poe piece. (Please forgive the flash bounce. This photo does not do justice to the haunting beauty of the piece. ) It now sits on my writing desk to inspire. Thank you Abigail!

Check out Abigail's online Gallery here. Prepare to be awed and surprised with the dark beauty of this work.
