The Firebird

by Rhonda Libbey

“And in my dreams I see myself on a wolf’s back
Riding along a forest path
To do battle with a sorcerer-tsar (Koschei)
In that land where a princess sits under lock and key,
Pining behind massive walls.
There gardens surround a palace all of glass;
There Firebirds sing by night
And peck at golden fruit.

This unframed watercolor painting is 5″ x 7″ on Stonehenge watercolor paper. The apples are in metallic gold watercolor.

Hello! I'm Rhonda Libbey, and Imaginative Realism artist and illustrator. I live in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania with my wonderfully supportive boyfriend and two silly ferrets.

I grew up in an unusual old farmhouse where the decor was lavish and art nouveau. I was surrounded by stylized beauty indoors and natural beauty outdoors. I began my artistic journey when I was 6 years old, beginning with drawing, and I have never stopped. To be an artist is the only thing I ever wanted to be, it is the only way I have ever known.

I have been a professional illustrator and graphic designer since 1996 and I have had the good fortune to work on some cool projects and I have shown in some great galleries.

My most recent works are created traditionally in oil paint and gold leaf, with oil paint layered in glazes on top of the metal to achieve a luminous effect. I am drawn to the contrasts of delicate and bold that both oil paint and gold leaf possess.
