SURREAL ART -- FAERIES
Lemonade: the second work of
original surreal art from an important period of artistic
development. All three major works created at this time feature
faeries (or fairies). Faeries and mermaids are potent symbols
from deep within the human imagination. Original surreal artwork
featuring faeries can be found in the online drawing and painting
galleries. A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist,
is included with purchase.

works really well with the meaning of the piece <g>.
Too funny :)
The sword is white, but even the purest white can become (or
be seen) as black. That's why the sword become black when
seen through the shadow of the hand. It IS a white sword,
but then again we all know that the road to Hell is paved
with good intentions. BIGtime. This piece is all about perspective
and viewpoints. An example of a white sword turned black?
A white lie, the Spanish Inquisition, the Crusades, etc.,
etc. The road to hell is paved with good intentions...
The faery guides her awkward craft (the broken/torn queen
of hearts card): one hand on the head, the other on the heart.
The torn/broken queen of hearts card and faeries are symbols
carried throughout three of the works in this series ("Wildcard,"
"Lemonade," and "Midnight"). The combination
of contourism, crosshatching and stippling are also common
elements in these works of original surreal art featuring
This artwork featuring faeries, is the second work of original
surreal art in a series of four. Click
