Fantasy Art

My name is Rhiannon and I am a married mother of three. I am also a Fantasy Artist, working in pencil, colored pencil and oil. It is my goal to start an unusual sort of business. I want to paint people as fairies, dragon tamers, mermaids, warriors, etc. I have done several of these paintings already, but for the past six years I have painted subjects realistically, just their portraits. I liked this, but my passion is fantasy. This is one of my drawings:

It's fun and interesting work. However, I love the experimenting and imagination involved in doing fantasy work. I have a website that describes what I am trying to do in more detail:
I'm not sure if I am being 'unrealistic' or not. I am going to just lean into it, and start doing fantasy paintings, before anyone commissions me to do so. I am going to have faith and just paint.
