Fairy Frolic!

Hello my fairy loving friends - Ha!  Fairy Frolic has started here in my tiny studio. The weather has warmed up and the fairies have come out to play in my blooming garden.  Here is Summer's "Sunday Girl" done up in an altered book journal. 

Sunday Girl

And here is another one I did on Strathmore's mixed Media Paper...

 In Flight

This was not my favorite paper to work on with Prismas and markers, I prefer smooth bristol, but it wasn't bad.  The camera really washed her out!

I will be posting more fairies  that is if I can tear myself away from puttering about my garden and yard, lol!  One thing you all know about me. It's all about Faeries, Mermaids, Angels and Goddesses!

On another note, I took my Mom out for a belated Mother's Day trip.  We went to Bandon By the Sea and had a fab time of it.  Of course we stopped by my favorite, Winter River Books, and enjoyed lunch looking out over the sea. Mom does have a certain weakness for clam chowder. Not me! I had blackened chicken with salad. We went sightseeing and then stopped at the bakery to get Mom some cookies and bread.  The drive to and from Bandon was spectacular as well - and fun was had by all!

Might I suggest that you keep your eyes open in the wilder and less traveled green area's for our magical flower fairies.  They seem to be coming out more this year than ever before!

Well it's that time when I always say, keep your paint trays and brushes close at hand and your colored pencils sharpened and I will see you soon!

Forever in art,

Jessi

I love your fairy girls they are always so beautiful. You do a wonderful job with your faces. Thank you for commenting on my blog. I am not caught up on drawing faces, so I probably won't finish them all in May. I have fun when I do have the time. I'm glad that you and your mom had a good time on your trip. Keep posting because I love seeing what you are up to.

Very lovely. As all your paintings are. Sounds like you are having a magical and wonderful time. What a glorious day with your mom. Sounds amazing. I agree, the fairies are out and about, making mischief, but also creating beauty. :)

Hi Jessi,

Sorry i haven't posted a comment for some time. Lost my dad this past Nov. It's been tough, but I am trying to find my way back to what i love...ART! It's just the nature of the beast to suck all interest out. Miss seeing your Art. Loving your faeries. Your Art has always been an inspiration to me. Looking forward to seeing more through your glass/window.
Big Hugs,
Maggie
