“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Wings only

I was sitting outside the other morning and about a thousand butterflies were swarming all over the citrus trees..OK, OK, maybe there were 5 or 6, but it looked like a lot more. I don't know about you but aside from the wings they creep me out a little. Either way they inspired me to paint these two butterfly winged fairies.

So something pretty cool has been gifted to me and I am going to share the news with you in the next post, also a giveaway for you lovely bloggers is coming up soon!
Hope you have a great week.


  1. Your fairies are lovely! And, yes, butterflies are a bit funky...at the end of the day they are still BUGS!

  2. hello friend
    very precious!!

  3. gosh these are so beautiful you are so talented to have painted these yourself hugs cherylx

  4. I love butterflies...and dragonflies...I once went for a walk through a wooded area with my boys when they were young... we entered an open field and there were millions (I mean pretty close to that - well maybe hundreds) of dragonflies - they landed all over us as we walked through - it was amazing and kind of creepy at the same time... sooooooo many. Love the paintings!
    cheers, dana
