Along came a spider from

Along came a spider from

An acrylic painting on canvas...of a little tiny faerie in a spider's lair. There's a redback spider dropping down onto her wing, and in the shadowy background there is a huge wolfspider... the faerie is dressed in a grey tutu and she wears a blood red horned helmet... she carries a speckled golden yellow egg in her hands...

I painted this for the Enchanted Visions April theme.

I had a little story to go along with the painting, and now cannae find it, but basically it was that the faeries and the spiders are at war... and the faeries are always having to rescue their eggs. Sometimes they win and they get their eggs back...sometimes they don't. I don't that this little faerie is looking too lucky...

I can't get this song out of my head... I liked her up until her meat dress, which I thought tacky, sans class & plain ugly. Not sure what her point was there but I didn't get it.

Not overly sure I get this video clip either... clearly I am getting old haha. What's she carrying on the cushion?????

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to fellow bloggers (especially all the ZazzlerDazzlers) let's hope this year is a bigger, better and busier year than ever before! I for one have plenty of ideas for new fairies, elves, and lowbrow original art. Now if only I could find the time to get them all painted!

Best wishes and happy zazzling ;)
