Do you believe in Unicorns?

I do.

I would love to believe that they exist in some obscure corner of the Earth. That they know of mankind's destruction and always hid themselves from our view. I believe that they exist as much as I believe that Yetis and Nessie exist. They are just really good at eluding us :)

When I found out that there are 'unicorns of the sea', I was intrigued. These 'unicorns of the sea' are the narwhals (pronounce /närwəl/). They are small Arctic whales and the males have a long, forward-pointing spirally twisted tusk developed from one of it's teeth.

They seem so mystical to me and I found myself drawn to them... and so, one night I just painted one free-hand. No pencil, no prior planning... I just dabbed some watercolor on my paintbrush and painted.

My little narwhal

I loved how it turned out and decided to make it into a bookmark for a dear friend.

This is an original watercolor bookmark and I really hope she will like it :)

If you would like to have an original narwhal watercolor bookmark, just contact me via my shop and I'll make one just for you!
