Artist's Description

The Knighting of Sir Peanut a poem by RestLeSsD

On this wonderful day
Sir Peanut would be Knighted
He became a true blue-blood
No longer did he feel slighted.

The fairy Princess of St. George
Traveled across the open sea.
To reward loyal Sir Peanut
With this honorable decree.

From this day forward
All would know by this act
The daring, brave old Peanut
Was a royal, and that’s a fact!

Additional information:
Fairy Wings:

A fairy child is not born
As I am sure you all do know
With a full set of wings
They develop as the child grows.

A fairy princess is special,
Her wings are made of shells
They are coated in fine silver
They tinkle just like bells.

As she becomes a young woman
Her wings begin to feather
The transparent soft layers
Become sheaths as strong as leather.

So, perhaps you passed on by
A child you thought was eerie.
Not realizing that one day
They would grow into a fairy. . .

I started with a beach shot I took of my granddaughter (see original below) and created a fantasy image completely in Photoshop CS2 using layers, blending modes and masking. Digital painting using DAP blending layers..
