So you caught me in this reverie,
There at home where I could stay for hours.
You thought I was trapped from within.

I won't blame you, if you couldn't notice
That my aloneness was filled
Richer than all the madnesses and frenzies
You all live in.

The austere discomfort I am coiled in
Beneath that hole on the ceiling
Is a whole universe of fancies
And the sweetest haven for heart and soul.

Oil painting on canvas - 120x80 cm (47.3x31.5 inch)

Hi, I’m really enjoying Home and the Fairies, the attention to detail is incredible and then unfinished paintings makes you wonder what he was going to paint before the fairies go to involved.

I’m currently co-developing a writing app called Prompt that utilises daily images and written prompts to inspire poetry and stories. Home and then Fairies is just the kind of image we are looking to showcase; your own poetry shows how inspiring this is. Would it be possible to include this image in our initial line-up? We don’t ask for rights or anything, just permission to include it as one of our daily prompts that can inspire wither writers and artists. We naturally would attribute the image and will add any other info wanted.

To be honest I'm not an artist but I have to say the mood of this is wonderful.  The mix of light and color is almost soothing to me.

I already liked the painting, but I just see:
You should add more indirect lighting!
Reflections from the floor, walls, etc. on the person, elves, stones etc.
I can highly recommend James Gurney: Color and Light!

I love how all the fairies look like they have a different personality!  The curious one, playful one, one that's sleepy/snuggly, etc.  You are very talented and thanks for sharing your work :)
