One of my biggest joys is spending time in my beloved garden. I talk to the flowers, trees, birds, bees and other animals that visit, but there is another little spirit that resides here that is harder to see…
This whimsical fairy was created with watercolours and dried pressed flowers that I picked from my garden: petunia, lilly, rose and pansy petals amongst others. I also included mulberry ink from our beautiful old mulberry tree’s bountiful supply.
You can see the remarkable detail of the petals’ veins in the prints.
She sits amongst the mushrooms and flowers, keeping watch on all the elements that grow in this magical realm.
She is part of an exhibit at The Left Bank Shop & Gallery in my hometown of McGregor, Iowa. The exhibit, “Local Inspiration” features work of selected gallery artists interpreting local themes. She is for sale there, or you can buy a gorgeous archival reproduction print here on my website Liza Paizis.com/Fairies
Thank you for visiting, and have a magical day !
She has such a vibrant & luminous spirit……..glowing & ethereal amongst all the natural elements! I love that she is so otherworldly, and yet she tends to this world with such love. Gorgeous!
Thank You for your beautiful words Andrea! I love how you describe her existence in two realms…so true of nature spirits 🙂
Isn’t she beautiful! And graceful and still!
Liza she is stunning and I talk to the birds and the bee’s and as a child I talked to the fairies too. Im glad they are still out there in the garden.
Thank you Kath ! I’m not surprised you, too, talk to the beautiful nature elements around us…they truly give back to us with inspiration, beauty and love, and I can see this reflected in your gorgeous art 🙂
