“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.”
― Roald Dahl

Witches in fiction 2016: Kindness

I began this painting a while ago, but didn't finish until very recently.
This is called 
'Spring Witch'
The flowers floating from her make me think about how we need to scatter kindness.
Although my favorite season is Autumn
I feel like we all need to keep Spring in our hearts and surrounding us.
Have you ever helped a stray?
Planted flowers or brought food to a shelter?
To me that is magic...kindness is magic.
It keeps your soul nourished.
We need to sow these seeds of Spring..emotions of love and care,
in order to help, not only the planet but each other.

A special thank you going out to the wickedly clever and beautiful Magaly.
Leave a comment and you get a chance to win a smaller painting of this witch
made to your specifications:)
