The Green Fairy

The Green Fairy colored pencil illustration by Lani Mathis of GreenSpaceGoods.This is my submission for Illustration Friday for "forgotten". She looks like she has been hurt and left behind, although I don't know who could just forget her.

I think it is important as an artist to look back every now and then. I tend to forget about phases I went through, pieces I was proud of, and techniques I abandoned. This is one of my favorites in colored pencil, a medium I'd nearly forgotten about. I keep thinking I ought to sell her, but I haven't been able to let go yet. A sensible person would at least hang her on the wall, but no... alone she sits waiting for me to make up my scattered mind. There are so many pieces I wish I had pictures of. My head has lost track of so many.

She looks as if she is resting after being in a battle of some sort with those tattered wings and her hand up to her head. The monochrome color works well. Colored pencil is one of my favorite mediums because you can create so much depth. Beautiful work!
