Off With the Fairies?

Wow, what a question to consider!

Am  I, Kate, of Art Finds Kate, off with the fairies?

"Did you just call me Cheep? I'm not Cheep. Cheep!"

Hmmmm.   Let me contemplate the notion:

Wellllllll, there have most certainly been times of late where it has felt exceptionally fantastic to stick my fingers in my ear and sing "Lah, lah, lah, laaaaaaaah!" whilst shutting my eyes very tightly in response to the chaos around me.

And I keep forgetting about thing-a-me-whats-it.

If, I then consider using these two thing-a-me's as key indicators for diagnosing acute "Fairy-itis", I hypothesise that I would, in fact, be living with this condition.  (Goodness I hope that I've used the "politically correct" phrase here.   Apologies if I have offended any Fairies out there!)

So, yes, dear reader, in conclusion - I am indeed off with the fairies.  (Maybe.)  What's this post about again?"

Ha-ha. Only kidding!  (Or am I not?  That's for me to know and you to wonder!)

In order to honour my current quandry, I decided to create an image of the most beautiful Australian fairy I know - the Fairy Wren.
This image was created using Canson paper with Art Spectrum and Conte pastels.  Whatcha think - you like it?

I think I do.  I'm contemplating whether I try drawing my wee Fairy again, just to see if I can improve on the image.  I am a very big believer in practice actually helping you to get better.  Go figure.

Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing what I've been up to.

I'll see you around (possibly with my fingers still stuck in my ears),
