The theme for Illustration Friday this week is Myth.
It was fun to create this little fairy.
I grew up in a family where many brownies and fairies
lived under the leaves of the succulents in our California backyard.
My father often told us stories or read from his books
about their adventures.
He created in each of his children a love of enchanted creatures.
Everything was alive to us and had sweet personalities
such as our dolls who spoke to us from our fathers voice
each night before we went to sleep.
My own children grew up expecting all their dollies to talk to them too.
I am so grateful for a father who loved his children
enough to create wonder and delight in their lives.
