I created a small wall hanging/ornament for Pottermouth in the IYP 28 swap. We both love Harry Potter and we're both fairly obsessed with our Harry Potter Christmas trees. As it's already past Christmas, however, I wanted to make something that she could use as either an ornament or regular art depending on her fancy.

The scene is from THE TALE OF THE THREE BROTHERS by Beedle The Bard, a book featured rather heavily in the last Harry Potter novel. It depicts the first brother being given the Elder Wand by death.







I knew the moment I had the idea that I wanted to paint it on a tree limb cross-section so it'd have a lovely bark grain on the outer edges.

Clearly the section I chose was always meant to have this picture painted on it because it had a dark black splotch, similar to the one on the opposite side pictured below, in the middle of the wood and in roughly the shape of death's skull. I decided to go with it rather than finding a different cross-section.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

This turned out so coooooooolll! The wood is such a perfect fit for the subject matter and it's painted so beautifully! It's like a still from the animation right out of the movie. Love it!
