Okay, I wasn't going to paint again until after the 4th since I am so busy with a party tonight and a barbecue tomorrow, but I got so distracted!
I was strolling through my yard and I saw the most perfect (albeit poisonous) mushroom! When I bent down to take a closer look, I could swear I saw a tiny fairy run from behind it! I wanted to paint this picture before I forgot what she looked like...
This shy fairy looks frightened as she hides behind a mushroom. I used fern fronds from my yard to stamp the design on the back ground. This 6x6 stretched canvas will be on eBay soon. The link is at the top of the page.
Keep a look out, fairies are active this time of year!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
