Never before has there been such a need for magic in the world. But there is magic ~ all around us and most of all, inside us, if we just choose to see and experience it.
Here is my magic Unicorn, held by a Maiden. The Unicorn can only be approached by a human of pure spirit. In the midst of the darkness, there is a stronger Light. It is the magic that is the creative Human Being, dreaming a more gentle and enlightened path, conjuring up the true spirit of Creation: Love and endless potential. The original is for sale here.
I have always lived very much within my Imagination, creating fantasy realms and expressing this with my art on many different levels. I believe that Magical Realism is not just a creative genre, it is a way of Life. Unicorns are the ultimate symbol of this magical realm, that resied within us, and exists with that
This lovely whimsical painting was inspired by a folk-style portrait of two girls I saw from the 1800’s.
It was a tradtion in former times for parents to place a coral necklaces on children as coral was thought to protect the wearer from ill health and harm.
I love the style of Magical Realism painting, where is the subject matter is often blurred between realism and a strong nuance of the quirky or magical.
This painting is primarily done in watercolours, with touches of gold, silver and coloured pigment ink.
I particularly enjoyed painting the two sisters, as it is a dedication to my own sister and the beautiful spirit of sisterhood…
….who knows what they, and their little totem owls within their arms are thinking?
