The last photo shows how Nancy created the original painting.
Prints of the art will be on watercolor paper, so as to preserve the singularity of the oil original.
A note from my fairy journal:
In the first week of February 2010, a light snow fell upon my town. Two of my small vinyl dolls braved the snow to balance on a spruce tree for photos. In the art, I created new faces and made costume changes.
As fairy art, the paintings also speak to me of the love between a mother and daughter, a mentor and girl, or between sisters. I believe these paintings to be about affection, protection and tenderness.
The blue-floral dress was designed by Tracy of sewmanydreams from an MHD doll pattern. The child fairy's white dress and bonnet were inspired by a Boneka doll outfit. I added a broach, a crystal jewel, pearls, ribbon embroidery, and blue lace.
One of my husband's baby blue-spruce trees appears in each of these paintings. In the print, the spruce size is 40% of its real-life size.
I wish to thank Janet for inspiring me with her 2010 request that I paint some winter fairies. ~ Nancy Lee on December 8, 2011
