Artist's Description

For Faerie World’s Faerie Self Competition.

The challenge was to draw ourselves in Faerie aspect. I have depicted myself here with symbolism relating to what I consider my greatest accomplishment in life. Motherhood.

Everything you see incorporated with this image has been carefully chosen to help define the things I find most important about my role as a mother.

Colour was a very important consideration. I have used green, blue and yellow as the main colour elements as they represent healing and growth. The pink flower buds are equally important as pink represents pure love.

Vines and flowers are used as a representation of the life/lives I have been entrusted with; to care for, nourish and allow to grow strong, beautiful and independent.

I have put together the following prose to describe the other symbolic representations that my faerie counterpart is trying to portray. Please enjoy.

I am Mother

Mother stands tall though thorns pierce her feet.
She holds on to the vines steadfastly,
firmly, though not so tight as to be restrictive,
though thorns graze her hands.
For there can be no true joy
if you do not know pain and sorrow.

Mother stands tall beneath the harsh elements.
Protecting her young as they grow,
from the lightning and thunder
while allowing the rain to wash over them.
For they cannot appreciate sunshine
without the clouds and the rain to compare.
