Tea Time at the Fae Nest - Fairy Art

Tea Time for the Fae Original Painting by Jeanne FryEveryone needs a little quiet alone time, and Olive DewBerry knows this most of all. The Fae in the Grove know her as one of the most popular social butterflies in the Forest. Olive is always the one who hosts the Afternoon Tea Times, puts together fabulous birthday parties, and organizes the weekly Firefly Music Concerts. She has a perpetual smile, giggles ferociously, and makes everyone feel as if they are the most important person in the room. Olive is such a happy and kind Faerie, that she makes her job as an organizer look far easier than it is. 

So, what is Olive's secret to success? How does she make it all look so easy? And how on Earth does she keep that smile all day long? Olive learned the power of Me Time. She understands that in order to be able to give so much, and to be able to give happily from the heart, that she Must take care of herself first. 

In the early morning hours when the dew is still clinging to the petals, Olive quietly whisks herself away to a secret spot, where there is an empty nest amid the wild growing Wisteria. She crawls into the nest with a cup of Earl Grey tea. Here she slowly wakes up and listens to the songbirds and the crickets and the rabbits hop around in the thicket. Sweet smells of jasmine and honeysuckle waft through the breeze. These are the moments that are most special to her. Finally, when the sun creeps through and kisses the tip of her nose, she knows it's time to leave her secret morning magic and off to start a new day.

Mermaid and Patina Moon

Mermaid and Patina Moon
In the past she would swim to the surface to sit along the water's edge and watch the humans. She used to find them quite magical. Most mermaids thought so. But over time she lost her intrigue. She began seeing their shadow sides, and how their fears evolved into hate. She couldn't stand to watch them being so mean to one another anymore and decided to remain in the safe and loving waters of the cove. 
As the years passed she began to change. Merfolk don't age like humans, with wrinkles and such. Merfolk begin to patina when they age, a colorful sheen cloaks them, most especially their tail. As she began to patina, she became hidden in the waters even more. She blended into her surroundings with precision. This made the Moon ever so sad because he loved Fin the most. 
It seemed that every night it would take longer and longer to find her. Finally one cold night in November he called to Fin and presented her with a gift wrapped in stars. Inside she f…

The Goddess of the Four Directions - 30 Goddesses in 30 Days Series

She carries with her the Wisdom of the Four Directions. Each direction has its dedicated space on the spiritual journey, and its own element that helps to fuel it. Honoring the four directions allows to not only be in balance with the Earth, but to be in balance within ourselves. 

The East (air element) is symbolic for New Beginnings. It is here where the sun rises, our projects are in their birthing stages, and transformations are in their infancy stages. The South (fire element) is a stage of action. It is being in the "present moment", and living in the present moment. Here you are living life passionately and creating the things that you want. The West (water element) is symbolic of emotional healing. When we are here, we spend dedicated contemplation on "who we are". We let go of the things that no longer serve us, and try to surround ourselves with the things that nurture our souls.  The North (earth element) is for clarity and truth. The grounded quiet time…

The Sun Goddess Bast, a Lioness of the Woman's Soul in Watercolor

I was intrigued with this particular Sun Goddess, as she has changed greatly throughout history. "Bast" was the ancient Egyptian Lion Goddess of the Sunset, a fierce protector and warrior. Later in time she became known as "Bastet", and instead of being associated with the Lioness, she was connected to the highly revered Cat, and known to be a Protector especially of women, children, and families. Mothers could look to her for fertility and protection of their young ones. (When the Greeks later occupied Egypt, she became associated with the moon instead of the sun)
Her name translated  to "She of the Ointment Jar". She was often depicted on ornate alabaster jars that held exquisite perfumes and ointments, and was known as the "perfumed protector".


Bast changed and evolved in her symbolism as Egypt's rule and influences changed over history. Throughout all of this change though, she still represented a fierce protection of home, families, and…
