PIC -- FAERY WINGS
A brand new surreal pic (2004)
that finished off a contemporary surreal series of art that
began in 1996. One of the major symbols, carried throughout
the entire series, is the faery wings (a symbol for IMAGINATION).
I like the fact that such a dramatic series...ends with a
smile :) A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist,
is included with purchase.

This surreal pic started out as an exercise in drawing. It
had been soo long, that I was downright rusty. Click

It's amazing how the subconscious works! Here I am, doing
my self-imposed homework (drawing exercises), putting keywords
into the website and reading a book in-between. The book ends
off with an incredible mental image of a young lady with dragon
blood, a blazing fire and some baby dragons. A sci-fi/fantasy
Madonna of fire sort of surreal image. I figure this is where
my burning hair is coming into play. It's fine with me that
the image is going from homework to surreal art pic :) At
the same time I'm working on the keywords of the drawing gallery
and I get stuck looking at "Midnight"
for a while. The imagery of Pain, Anger & Sorrow just
locks me into a flashback. Intense. Then I carry on and forget
about it. Somewhere along the way, I'm working on this little
doodle and I walk by a copy of "Midnight" hanging
on the wall...and it hits me: I have to add faery wings to
this image because the face in the burning hair has returned.
Everything has come full circle. What began in Pain, Anger
& Sorrow has moved into Happiness. Wow. Blow me away,
but it's true. So now you know too.
This is the final work in a series of original surreal pics,
began in 1996. Common elements of the series: a broken queen
of hearts playing card, the i-fish and a fairy (as well as
the use of three separate inking techniques). By the third
surreal pic in the series, the fairy image (a symbol for the
artist's imagination) has broken into two separate pieces:
shown as faery wings. The faery wings are the element included
in this small work of art, the culmination (a footnote almost)
to the surreal pics began so many years ago. It's a mental
cleaning house before the stage is set for the next period
(hopefully a VERY prolific one :)
