"I thought the earth remembered me, she took me back so tenderly,
arranging her dark skirts, her pockets full of lichens and seeds.
I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed, nothing between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths among the branches of the perfect trees.
~from Sleeping in the Forest by Mary Oliver

This painting is inspired by my thoughts on faerie music. Those wild compelling melodies that require you to dance, to grow, to change in maybe strange ways. Many folktales tell of the enchanting beauty of faerie song, and the dangers.
This painting was done on a cradle wood panel. I really love how you can see the wood grain. Media used includes: collaged book pages, acrylic paint, tissue paper, and snake skin.
Inspired by the folk
