So I was strolling through the garden with my camera at hand and this garden fairy happily chitchatting along side…you know what I am talking about. There are everywhere high summer, right? She is a perky little thing although she can gossip quite horribly about all the other creatures in my garden.
She looked so charming when she leaned against this little toadstool and I wanted to take her picture. But last minute, she squealed and ducked away…you can just see her wings there.
So I said: ” Whaaat?” and she squeaked that her hair wasn’t right, there was a wrinkle in one of the wings, she was wearing the wrong dress. “No,No, No….but you can draw me?”, she purred. All right than, so I took out my sketch pad and made this drawing. I am not so pleased with the result but she keeps hovering all over it, humming softly.
She might look a little shy because of the way she poses…but I think of her as a fairy with an attitude.
Het is hoogzomer en t stikt in de tuin van de tuinelfjes, zoals altijd rond deze tijd, toch? Dit dametje wilde niet op de foto (je kan nog net haar vleugeltjes achter de paddestoel zien) maar ik mocht haar wel tekenen: verwaand ding!
Love and Liefs, Johanna.
