The Lynx, another faint constellation in the northern hemisphere and not usually associated with any myths. In First Nations stories the Lynx is the name of the daughter of the Sky Woman, she who fell to Earth through a hole in the Sky World and for whom the Elder Creatures of the Earth prepared a safe place to land, Turtle Island (North America).
An artist and illustrator living in southwestern Ontario. My passion is the beauty of the illustrated page. I create detailed and imaginative paintings for children's books and licensed products. My paintings are executed in glowing watercolours on 100% cotton hot-pressed paper. Please visit my website at www.francestyrrell.com.
"Work, give, share; recognize the blessings you have and multiply them in your heart; do not strain after the impossible, but keep hope fresh in your soul, the hope that each day will be better than one just lived, which was already good because, like the Boy Scout, you tried to do at least one kind act in the twenty-four hours. Joy lies within your heart; does not depend upon what you are or have ." Queen Marie
