Fairy Lore and Brownies

According to, a Brownie is "a Scottish domestic fairy; the servants’ friend if well treated. Brownies are brown or tawny spirits, in opposition to fairies, which are fair or elegant ones; a legendary good natured elf that performs helpful services at night." Living in an older home, I'm fairly certain that it came with it's own Brownies. Just to be sure, I set out some tea and cookies for them in my studio so we can be on good terms. They are known for keeping a home neat and tidy, and I think they clean up after our negative energies and keep the home feeling good. At least they haven't been inclined to do any dishes that I've noticed.

Yes, this is a new one. She's called "The Brownie" and was created using watercolors, ink, and prismacolor pencils. I hope to have prints available of her soon. :)
