My entry for
"Yuletide spirit contest".
Beautiful reference photo for fairy I found here:[link]
Yule tide and wintertime overall is very magical. Elves footsteps on the snow, snowflakes falling... coldness and the brighstar sky.
After the cold winter comes spring once again. Like in my painting... maybe the fairy misses the spring flowers so she makes a spell and wakes up one.
Painted with acrylics and I used some glitter on this one too.
