Dragonfly Fairy (with Mystic Fairy Flower)

It has been awhile since I created any fairy illustrations, so yesterday I did!


With this piece, I wanted to see how much detail I could get into a 2.5" x 3.5" area. So, I began with a tiny face with a fairy and a dragonfly in mind. Combined the two to create a "Dragonfly Fairy" and went from there. As the drawing progressed, the Mystic Fairy Flower was added, as well as several other zentangle inspired patterns. The final result is what you are viewing in this post.

"Dragonfly Fairy"

The original is up for auction at eBay....

Open Editions prints are in my Etsy Shop ....

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

    2. You are gonna get a chuckle out of the next one Magaly ... it has another table top mosaic ... although I think "Mandela" sounds better than table top! LOL!

  4. Karen Anne!! You rock girlfriend! You know what, I see someone bought it for your buy it now price. I don't think you should do that anymore, because I think you could have got more money for it! Like your last one!! You deserve it too, because I know you put a lot of time in your zentagles! I love her little face ;o)

    1. You are right Stacy ... This one went WAY too fast! Made another ACEO this afternoon and I'm gonna double the starting bid price and the Buy It Now price. Maybe then it will stay long enough for people to actually see it! LOL!

      Doing a face that small is really hard ... but I am sure I'll try another really soon....
