Art: SOLD - He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not by Artist Shawn Marie Hardy
This fairy princess holds a chalice with a single flower in it. She's pulling off the petals one by one to find the answer to her question. She fell in love with a butterfly king and hopes to be his butterfly queen, but she'll be just fine if the answer is "not."

I love butterflies. The whole metamorphosis that takes place between the larval, pupal, and winged stages is wonderous, but also it is sad as these creatures live such a short life once they are free from their cocoons.

I often use butterflies and moths in my work. Their beauty inspires me to create so in a sense they are the muse behind these lovely insect fairies. But a bigger inspiration comes from my love of surrealism and the idea that you can create your own world with winged fairies and things that can only be real in the imagination.

This is a mixed media collage on paper - unframed. It is a one-of-a-kind piece - not a print. A COA will be available upon request. This item has been sold.
