I've always had a fascination with faeries, loved reading stories about them, loved drawings and paintings of them, and absolutely loved the movie Fairy Tale about the Cottingley Fairies-----saw one of the girl's daughter and grandaughter on the Antique Road Show with the fairy pictures and the camera they took them with.
Most of my life I have never done anything in the way of drawing or painting.
But a few years ago, inspired by Cicely Mary Barker's beautiful faery pictures I decided to see if I could draw them too.
I used colored pencil and made many copies. I was thrilled, I could draw.
up on my interest in faeries a couple of years ago my daughter April gave me a faery house which I put in the garden. This year I've planted Impatiens in front of it and
Mac and Miss Kitty gave me a little bear on a swing for Mother's Day and we hung it in the tree behind the house.
Hope someone nice moves in....no alligators need apply.
