The Gloaming Jigsaw

The Gloaming 1000 Piece Jigsaw

The gloaming, that magical time of day after the sun sets and before darkness totally falls. A time of peace and tranquility deep in the woodland when the fairies sleep. It’s almost impossible to find sleeping fairies, they tuck themselves deeply into flowers and foliage where they will be safe and undisturbed. In a woodland, the bed of choice is Lily of the Valley.

The Lily of the Valley is an ancient-woodland-indicator plant. If you spot it while you’re out exploring, it could be a sign you’re standing in a rare and special habitat, so special in fact that amongst the lush leaves you may well find a fairy in slumber. As darkness begins to fall at gloaming, you may notice a soft glimmering amongst this carpet of fragrant plants. This is because each plant with a fairy curled up within it’s leaves has a bell shaped flower on it’s stem softly aglow, making the perfect lamp for a fairy as she prepares for bed. As gloaming turns to nightfall the glimmering of soft lamp lights gradually dim and fade, easing the fairies into a peaceful sleep.

The Adornment Jigsaw

The Adornment 1000 Piece Jigsaw

Legend has it that Fairy Rings are worn areas in the grass made by fairies dancing. It is believed they are where fairies come to dance and celebrate, and perform many of the rituals of their own magic. Here in this painting you can see one of those rituals taking place. In the milky twilight, a flutter of fairies are adorning the sad sight of a fallen tree with garlands of ivy. Each garland is wound beautifully around the branches and trunk by the fairies as they dance, like winding green leafy ribbons around a maypole. I know ivy is not popular with many but I have always thought it looks so pretty wrapped around a tree. The next time you see something covered in ivy, check to see if there is a fairy ring near by. You can be sure fairy magic has been at work, breathing life into the neglected and long forgotten things around us.

Dragonflies Jigsaw

Dragonflies 1000 Piece Jigsaw

The red dragonflies are of significant importance to my client as they represent a fond part of her life when she was studying Chinese medicine some years ago. My brief was to paint these beautiful creatures dancing with fairies so I came up with this scene, each fairy partnered with a dragonfly, lost in their dance. When you see the glimmer of gossamer wings over a lily pond can you be absolutely sure it’s a dragonfly you saw? Or could it possibly be a fairy?

Changing Seasons Jigsaw

Changing Seasons 1000 Piece Jigsaw

Magic is all around us in the change of the seasons and no where is it more apparent than in the humble apple tree…… is it possible nature has a little helping hand?

The fairy guardians of this tree all have an important role to play on the journey through the seasons. In spring the fragile apple blossom is cared for and, when the time is right, each little petal is released on a warm gentle breeze. The hot summer days bring delicious ripe fruit, polished to perfection using cloths of pure spun spidersilk. As the autumn days turn colder the leaves are artfully changed from green to hues of orange and red with the flick of a paintbrush. In winter, the raindrops turn to icicles and shards of frost are expertly and carefully applied to all the edges of the last remaining leaves that cling to the almost bare branches.

This painting was a specially commissioned piece and was so enjoyable yet challenging to do! Each season needed to work strongly on it’s own as well as seamlessly change from one season to the other so it took a bit of planning and many colours to achieve it….unusual for me as I always favour a limited colour palette in my paintings!

Accidents Happen Jigsaw

Accidents Happen 1000 Piece Jigsaw

Hydrangeas fascinate me. How is it you can have different colour blooms in just one shrub?

These young fairies have been given a little job to keep them out of mischief….painting some of the blue hydrangea flowers from blue to pink. A fairly simple task to do you would think but little ones are very easily distracted! One little fairy is upset that she has knocked her paint pot over, causing a cascade of pink to discolour two blooms that were meant to stay blue. Oh dear.

The next time you see multicoloured blooms on a hydrangea shrub you can be sure some excitable little fairies were there just before you learning how to paint. Yes, they might look messy but accidents happen and it’s amazing how beautiful accidents can be. 🙂

Shy Violet

Wild violet, an unassuming wildflower that can grow abundantly if undisturbed and usually the perfect hiding spot for fairies. This fairy and her young child have been spotted though! Fairies are naturally shy and mistrustful of human folk, with good reason being so tiny and vulnerable. The young mother peeps shyly out from behind a violet flower holding her child to her with a protective hand. She is wary, unsure if the onlooker is friend or foe but the little fairy, hugging her mother’s leg for reassurance, is clearly delighted to make a new friend.

I so loved painting this one, it reminded me of the times my young daughters used to cling to my legs when they were shy and a little unsure of people they didn’t know…. 🙂

The Dragon’s Roar

The garden at night is a fabulous place for the young fairies to explore. Under the cover of darkness they are hidden and safe…..or are they? Here one little fairy is bravely exploring the forest of Snapdragon plants. Of course she has heard the tales of the dragon flowers coming to life with huge mouths that open wide and she doesn’t believe them. But, as a moon beam illuminates the fiery tones of an orange plant, the wee fairy gasps as she is confronted by a dragon head suddenly opening it’s mouth and letting out an almighty ROAR followed by a…..giggle? Hmm….Someone thinks this was a great trick to play…..not sure she will agree though!

Antirrhinums, so pretty and fun. As a child I loved squeezing those dragon heads, bringing them to life. To be honest, I still do 😁

High Winds

The wild beauty of the Scottish Highlands is often portrayed as a romantic part of Scotland. This is not at all strange given the stunning unspoilt nature with rugged mountains, deep blue lochs and empty glens where majestic Red Deer rule the hills and Eagles rule the skies. Due to the ever and fast changing weather the Highlands have a mystical touch. One moment you see the hills, the next they are gone. Sunny spells and dark shadows move over the hills and the white snow capped mountains in winter give the Highlands a sparkling touch.

A sudden strong wind has caught this fairy out! She clings to a thistle, waiting for the wind to drop…..a hazardous place of shelter for such a delicate creature. I hope her wings do not get torn!

The Gown Maker

Is there a more romantic, glamorous and flamboyant flower than the peony? It is surely the bloom of choice for the perfect fairy ball gown with it’s delicate, yet decadent, soft layers. In this painting a talented gownmaker is working her magic with soft pink peony petals. She works deftly, creating a gown of dreams for her very happy customer.

I wanted to create a vintage feel in this painting with the soft muted colour palette, reminiscent of the old Victorian flower paintings. The romantic style of the dress also lends itself perfectly to the Victorian era.

Waltz Of The Fuchsias

You never know what delights you might find in the garden if you are quiet and patient. If you are very lucky you might just get the chance to see a very special show like this one. Sunbeams fall through the dense foliage of a fuschia plant like stage lights and the fairy ballerinas take their places ready to perform. As the music starts the dance begins. The fairies in their beautiful cerise and purple costumes shimmer and shine as they twirl across the stage, their wings sparkling as they catch the sun. Such a breathtaking sight! The show is over when the sunbeam fades but the memory will live with you forever.

The Lucky Find

In this painting there is a young fairy who has made a very special discovery amongst the lush clover leaves. She will of course have been told about the lucky four leaved clovers by the older fairies but I expect she never thought she would actually find one herself. I understand her sheer delight and awe at finding this beautiful treasure because I felt just the same when I found my first four leaved clover as a young girl. I pressed mine between the pages of a book…problem is I forgot which book it was and I never found it again!

Iridescence

Dragonflies are magical. The power in their wings and grace in their flight are very similar to that of a fairy. It is no wonder the two creatures have a very special bond and can easily be mistaken for each other. The beautiful iridescent colours of the dragonfly are mirrored in the dress of this fairy as she rests on a water iris and her shimmery wings are strikingly similar. So the next time you catch a glimpse of iridescent sparkle over a glassy lake or resting on a flower look carefully.....is it really a dragonfly that you see? 12"x24" acrylic on canvas.

Rise And Shine

Where do the young fairies sleep at night? They’re so small and vulnerable. I like to think the morning glory vine is the perfect place. This plant has large trumpet-shaped flowers and as the sun sets in the evenings the young sleepy fairies climb into the beautiful blooms. The morning glory is truly magic. It twirls up its buds tightly at night to make cocoons, keeping the little ones safe. When the sun hits the flowers in the morning they unfold, gently waking the fairies from their slumber. As a new day starts it looks like someone is already up to mischief with a drop of morning dew!
