Art inspired by the Renaissance, Celtic knots, fantasy art, and storybooks. I create traditional paintings, digital art and photograph knights, fair maidens, fairies, bagpipers, flowers and a few meadows too.
Garden Pigeon with White Butterfly and White Bush, Abbie Shores Faa Challenge 19
Mixed Media - Photography And Digital Painting
This piece was made for Abbie Shores's challenge, "Edit This" #19 located here: https://fineartamerica.com/contests/edit-this-19.html
This is a collaborative piece between two artists.
I tried to make this piece look like something out of a storybook and used a lot of elements including Abbie's photo, of course, with my own digital painting, and a digital program to make it look like an illustration.
Visual elements in the piece are fairy orbs, flower pots, a low garden wall, a pigeon, a butterfly, a white bush, lush plants in the background, with a border design featuring detailed plants.
Butterflies represent transformation (and white ones usually denote a spirit of someone who has passed over). The symbolism for the pigeon is loving, kindness and sacrifice (they are related to the dove). The white bush symbolizes authenticity and purity. The fairy orbs represent spirits and blessings. The garden represents the soul.
