Flower heads........waiting to become perfume.


I painted this some years ago in response to my little granddaughter's efforts to create fairy perfume.
The initial creation "looked" beautiful,but after a few days the expected perfume
began to smell of decaying vegetation. However by then she had moved on to her

next project and had forgotten all about it...................
No doubt for her the perfume was already made.
A lovely idea!

H,Ruby,
What a sweet story of your granddaughter and a beautiful painting! I always think when I see beautiful arts that the one can be created for table cloth, bag,parasol....How fun to imagine that! Your " Fairy Perfume" is so lovely!

Have a good weekend,
Tomoko

Hi, Ruby! How sweet your memory with your granddaughter! And how nice the memory contained in your lovely painting! At my age, I still believe fairies (or want to believe fairies?) and when I walk around nice fragrance, I’ll remember “Fairy Perfume” worn by fairies and your girl.
