Midsummer's Eve. SOLD OUT
Midsummer’s Eve takes place around the time of the Summer Solstice (which is the longest day of the year). At this time of year everything is abundant and flourishing. Nature’s lavishness has reached its pinnacle. This is a time for love and a time for lovers. As the sun sets on the eve of Midsummer bonfires are lit on the hilltops as a celebration of the power of the sun. The fires also honour the sun’s decline until its return the following year. Midsummer is believed to be a time when the veil between this world and the Otherworld thins. Fairies are at their most playful and most powerful. On this night a mortal may witness fairy dances and fairy celebrations beneath the full moon, but discreet observation is advised as many a poor soul, upon discovery, has been spirited away by the fairies.

inspiration before I started drawing. I ended up finding a comfortable spot by a stream and the drawing developed as a couple dancing and
some mischievious fairies around a fire.
