“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?” – John Lennon
My dear friends and the Universe,
Here I am again with another submission as DT member for the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog. Guess what?.. I’ve got another fairy image to work with, I hope you like this one as much as you liked my first ‘Fairy for you’ back in January.
Without repeating myself from my previous post on the same subject, I just wanted to share a bit more about the origin of these magical beings… I read that in European folklore, the fairy is a type of mythical being or legendary creature, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical and supernatural and that fairies resemble various beings of other mythologies. They appeared in medieval romances as one of the beings that a knight-errant might encounter and are generally described as human in appearance and having magical powers… Oh!, It’ is all so fascinated, isn’t it?… Yes, yes, yes, I love them, and they keep coming to me… 🙂
“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laughter broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies – Peter Pan”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Here is my first thought for the background in my project.
I used an already painted paper (a normal A3 photocopying paper) that my son issued a few weeks ago when we were playing together with colours using our hands only. He loves hand-painting and is the best way to get him involved using colours. I really liked what his little hands created and the colour combination (mixing the 3 primary colours only), so I decided to use it on my painting… 🙂 …
I glued the paper onto a little canvas (8 x 6 inch approx.) and begun to rearrange my thought on the canvas.. I used some collage for the mushrooms and part of the tree trunk.
