This sketch is from an entry in my journal in 2001 while healing from a surgery in the wee hours of the morning unable to sleep. This Faery is hiding underneath a Spider Lily. The literary concept idea I was working on then is that Faeries “fold light” to prevent themselves from being seen.
The Spider Lily is very sweet smelling and beautiful, and was a favorite resting spot of dragonflies in my garden. Mine was a gift from my best friends Karnjana’s garden. She had visited me earlier in the day- so maybe that is part of where the inspiration came from.
