Fairy Lucky

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This piece was my contribution to the St Patrick's Day festivities back in March! I really wanted to do a fairy piece, but also wanted to include some symbols that represented Saint Patrick. Hence the cross staff (he was a christian) , the snake coiled around it (he chased the snakes from Ireland), and all the 3 leaf clovers (they were his chosen symbol as the 3 leaves represented the holy trinity - Father, Son & Holy Spirit).....  The staff is painted in gold, as is her tiara & the coins in the pot of gold - all the clovers were outlined with a green glitter pen & really sparkle IRL... Oh yeah, and that knotwork took me forever & a day to do (well, 3 times longer than the rest of the whole picture!) I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out though....
