New Fairy Art on Our Web Site

We have two new giclée art prints at Ruffing’s.

and “Moon and Star”. Both are fantasy pieces and are taken from my original watercolor and pen and ink paintings.

When I painted “The Moon Sings a Lullaby Full of Poppies and Katydids”, I was imagining what kind of lullaby the moon would sing, if the moon could sing, to help people drift off to sleep. I thought of the sounds of katydids, which I’ve always loved to listen to on summer nights. And I thought of the poppy field in “The Wizard of Oz“, which caused Dorothy and her friends to fall asleep on their way to The Emerald City. So, this is a picture of the moon singing us all to sleep with a lullaby full of poppies and katydids.

In “Moon and Star”, I’ve depicted the moon as a woman with butterfly wings and the star as a little girl, both descending toward the horizon at dawn. The watercolor sky has shades of turquoise and blue and a little bit of yellow all dropped into a wet background for a soft effect.

Both giclées are a standard 8.5 x 11 inch image size on 9.5 x 12 inch fine art paper.
