It's Sunday night, visitors have just gone home, and I thought I'd take the chance to share my latest painting "Amethyst Fairy".
I've had a fascination with crystals lately. Some say they heal. Some say they have magic in them. Some say they can see the future in them. Some say this is all woo woo. I personally think they are beautiful and a gift from Mother Nature.
One of my favourites at the moment is the purple "Amethyst" quartz. Amethyst is a semi-precious purple gemstone used to calm and still a busy mind. I wanted to paint a fairy who would look like the guardian of this stone, and this is the girl who does just that...
This fairy brings all of these soothing qualities with her, bringing tranquility wherever she goes. She wears a delicate silver amethyst headpiece and little violet amethyst flowers in her hair. I wanted her to have greeny purple wings that look like a mix between dragonfly and butterfly wings.

Amethyst is also known as an 'artist's stone', bringing creative energy and focus to artists, poets and musicians. I hope that who ever has the chance to hang this painting or print on their walls will be able to look at it and feel a sense of peace, love and creative balance.
The original is available HERE,
and prints available HERE.
Tonight I'm working on a painting for this month's Big Eye Art Collective's Auction. The theme is the "7 Deadly Sins" and I've decided to do a set of them, starting with this one...
Can you guess which sin it's going to be??
Hope you've had a great weekend!
