I came across this artist on my virtual travels the other day and really loved the work. the colours used and the textures Kim plays with are soft and inviting, which contradicts the subject matter to some extent. Even though the pictures are composed with an evanescent dreaminess, the characters and landscapes hint at a hidden world not readily apparent, and a subtle sense of danger, very like faeries themselves.

On one of my glamorous and magical excursions I happened upon this artistic rendition of the green man! There were several witches and animals and toadstools accompanying this carving and I have to admit I was surprised to find this face amongst the collection! For a refresher of what this is, you can refer to this post https://faeriesight.wordpress.com/2011/05/18/the-green-man/
It was recommended that I check out the sketches of this artist, and am I ever glad for the tip! The sketches were pretty good, but the finished illustrations are very imaginative and ethereal. He really seems to connect with that fairy energy, and most of the poses and colours he used in his pieces capture that magical, other-worldly feeling you get in the pit of your stomach. He currently has a couple of books out, information on which you can find on his own sites. Links below.

Fritz Zuber-Buhler was a Swiss artist who lived in the 1800’s. Most of his paintings are portraits, but he does have some fairy ones.
The provided link tells you more about his life and the time period he was painting in. The last half of the second paragraph provides a brief explanation of the picture in colour ‘Spirit in the Morning’ and how it fit into his style. http://www.rehs.com/fritz_zuber_buhler.html.
I was drawn to this site by these fairy card bracelets
I found the concept to be kind of hilarious and thought that I’d look at the rest of the site to see if there was anything funnier. I came across these valentines day cards that are actually pretty cute.
