Fairy magic



Many many years ago I painted these sweet fairies. One is called "Foxglove fairy" and the other, "Dragonfly fairy". I used to display them in my living room. One day a friend was studying the paintings and pointed out that the foxglove fairy was bending low, with low held arms, as I was heavily pregnant with my daughter when I created the painting. The dragonfly fairy has an open outstretched lightness about her, indicating that my daughter was now born and all heaviness had been lifted.
It's an interesting concept! I still own the slightly grubby paintings, but sadly have not been able to put prints up for sale, as the definition will not photograph well. I'll have another try at some point! Many thanks for viewing ♥
