Artwork Description

This piece is rather personal to me. I was able to work out and get through back in February a miscarriage (I think previously I stated, March, scratch that) [link] I felt that all things, be it magically or otherwise, we all go through a mourning phase and this is how I saw it. A mother fairy to be lost her child and that "magic of life" is returning back to the Universe/Cosmos, etc. (where ever the essence of life springs and begins from) and that is how I felt at the time.

I did some research and I learned that a miscarriage is not really a bad thing. It means your body is functioning properly, means you're able to conceive and are fertile and the chances for having another healthy pregnancy next go around are good. And I looked at the energy of life that left me, waiting for the next go around or maybe it will be a new energy of life. But it was not meant to be at that time.

Have to see the positive in even the negative.

This was done on 140lbs. cold pressed paper (Canson Aquarelle) in watercolors (LOTS), colored pencils, polychrome pencils, white ink and gouache. I couldn't tell you how long it took me, only I learned, next go around with a border, black ink (which always scares me w/ watercolor)...
