Fairies and Butterflies watercolor art by Elizabeth RuffingI am making a limited number of reproductions of this image as a signed giclée print, on 8 1/2 by 11 inch art paper.

Fairies and Butterflies watercolor art by Elizabeth RuffingTwo fairies are knee-deep in a field of pink tulips. Butterflies are flying all around them. One fairy is laughing and enjoying them, while the other seems somewhat disconcerted by them. I liked the idea of a meeting between the two types of winged creatures. They are enclosed in a border of pink columbines.

The Fairy and The Dove by Elizabeth RuffingA fairy stands in a field full of iris in shades of purple and yellow, holding a baby dove in her hands. She will soon put him back in his nest. The wind is blowing around her, and the sunlight is showing between the leaves in the trees behind her. I’ve added a border of pink day lilies all pointing inward to enclose the scene.

Rosa the Original Baby Rose Flower Fairy Art Doll by artist Elizabeth Ruffing
I cast Rosa’s antique reproduction baby face using liquid papier mâché. I sculpted her head and ears with paperclay. I made the pattern for her body, and sewed it in 100% cotton cloth. I quilted her periwinkle butterfly wings by hand, and hand painted her with with acrylic paint. She will is sealed with matte varnish for protection.

The Fairy and The Dove fairy with a baby dove watercolor painting by artist Elizabeth RuffingI took my color inspiration for Rosa rose flower fairy art from my watercolor paintings, “The Fairy and the Dove” and “Fairies and Butterflies,” and chose a pretty soft orchid color for her onesie. I added peaceful blue and purple and yellow to her wings.
