A Fey Waif

Hello friends!

Yes, I am still here and I am still making art and I am so so happy to see that you are here too!

Sending you all some love this afternoon via this sweet, sketchy, little fairy mixed media painting, which was prompted by two words I pulled out of my Word Bowl.

The title can speak of both the dear little birdie and the fairy. and the only definition that I see above that I would think does not apply to this painting would be that of calamity or forboding.  I will let each of you interpret the painting's story as you see it.
