fauns & faerie folks. . .

as i went a wandering back over my posts
i glimpsed a distinct lack of my showing
very much at all of the things i have been doingmy patterned trees
sketched faerie folks
and costumes,
doodled faunsand back to trees again
as i try to find my feet & develop a style i like
so i thought i might leave you these
whilst i am away a wee while
visiting & exploring & re-charging
will be back very soon

  1. Such beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Ruthie

    your work is beautiful, there's no doubt you are a very talented lady but what I sense is YOU coming through the work...your gentle soft spirit, and that makes the work even more endearing...thank you

    Happy days

  3. Thanks for sharing these. When I was about 6 I dreamt I flew over an apple tree very much like yours. Maybe it was yours :)

  4. Lovely fairy images Ruthie.
    Very spacial work...
    I Love your William Morris style trees.

  5. It's lovely to see your recent artwork! It definitely has an 'art nouveau' feel and reminds me of the scottish artists of that time which I LOVE!x

    Beautiful work Ruthie! I love the colours of your last tree. Your creativity is great, I wish I could paint and draw, it would take me MUCH practice to be able to do a fraction of what you do.

  7. Oh what a beautiful blog!! I love your gypsy finds - they made my inner gypsy smile

    Your artwork is beautiful. I love the simplicity of the second picture an the background effect of the fourth.

  9. These are all so wonderful! Each and every one, charm, whimsy and magic. Thank you for sharing, they make me smile and dream.

    Hi Ruthie, hope your scans are going ok for you and you can get some help for your shoulder. Must be really difficult to cope with.
