This is one of my favorite fairy paintings of mine. She is so serene and dancing in the sky. I created her with a lot of texture - there is salt and gum arabic. I let the water flow spontaneously and spattered some paint to create the effect of motion through the sky.

About Fairies:
Lore of fairies, faeries, or fay/fey are abundant in many cultures throughout the world. Fairies are nature entities endowed with the powers of magic and enchantment. They go by various names in a variety of cultures - in Greek they are nymphs, in Arabic they are the djinn or jinni (genie), the Scandanavians have trolls, the Germans elves and the British pixies. Sometimes they are also known as brownies. They can be good or demonic, but typically they are mischievious and live in the natural world, such as meadows and forests. If you are lucky, they may even enchant your garden. The fairy religion was also known as the Goddess religion in Europe. Morgan le Fay was also known as Morgan the Fairy, and the Isle of Avalon and her part of the Arthurian legend was one of the last vestiges of Goddess worship.
