'True tales have no beginning or end. They do not exist only when men say 'Exist!' but instead are always there...reverberating through time in a dance, a weaving if you will. Only humans try to contain it with beginnings and ends. To put boundaries on everything simply because our own lives are bounded by birth and death. And thus we seek to lessen the power of that which is immortal. True tales have a power of their own though.' -from 'The Rain Queen' This is probably the strangest picture I have ever painted. Maybe it looks a bit crazy, but I suppose the world of the Faeries cannot be similar to ours ;) But of course sometimes this two worlds mix and a gate between them opens...
