Yes, out of these, my favorites are this one:

and the one Snowdog references as seeming like a tart, splashing in a swamp. [] I like the multi-dimensional sides of her personality. [] The representations only become sullied by the vagaries of our own imaginations. []

There he goes, reading my mind, again! If the eyes weren't so compelling, and the rest of the image basically lovely, I wouldn't give this one a second glance. Super-size Spock ears, OMgoodness! []

Kinda CFMish. I'm not really impressed with that artwork really. For the same person to come up with the other work is beyond me (unless there is some internet plagiarism going on)

Well, both could be Goldberry. When Tom first saw her she rose from the water and he sent her away. “Get thee gone foul temptress” I prefer the demure type.” So the next time he saw her sitting in the rushes she had cleaned up her act and he took her home.

The End

Hee! Well, I think Ol' Tom couldn't keep his mind off of her after she gave him that bold dousing. He realized he had met his match in her, and proposed to her at his next opportunity. [] She was playing, and he loved her for it. They played and sang and danced forever after. How romantic! []
