Cat Lady No. 266... Patterns

Illustration Friday
(theme:"pattern")


Various varieties of Garden Fairies can be identified by the intricate patterns in their wings. A skilled wing-reader can determine a fairy's place of birth and her special calling in the garden. An true expert might even be able to ascertain her preference in nectar--from very sweet to dry.

Garden Fairy Anika, for example was born in the Gardens of Gallamay, and her special calling is dewdrop dusting. She enjoys the company of her winged cat, Rikolo, who follows her on her rounds each dawn, ensuring that each dewdrop shines and sparkles and perfectly reflects an upside-down universe if you peek inside...


As for nectar, that small lavender triangle in the middle of the wing would indicate sweet. The sweeter, the better.

Thanks for visiting!



This brand new illustration is now available as a matted print in my Etsy Shop: Garden Fairy No. 4
