Unseelie Court: Pestilence by strangeling
The first in a new series I'm debuting called "The Unseelie Court" - I did this piece for Dragon*Con 2013 where it won the "Best Fairy" award in the Art Show. Each painting in my Unseelie Court series depicts important individuals or families within the Unseelie Court. Exploring the darker side of the Fairy Court, the Unseelie faeries take their theming from slightly unpleasant aspects of the magical and natural world. But of course despite being wicked they will have a beautiful and refinded elegance about them.... This particular piece features a dark angelic fairy personifying pestilence - complete with biohazard symbol, plague masks, and the Triumph of Death within her very gown. This is my own original acrylic painting.
