Faerie Island

I recently visited my brother John in Portland, Maine. We decided it would be fun to go out and paint for the day, and we chose a spot where we could see the bay and Mackworth Island. 

John told me there were little faerie houses all over the island, so since I like faeries, it was a lovely subject for me to paint.

I imagined there were many little faeries flitting about as I painted, appearing as little spots of light on the island in the center of the painting.

The next day we went to visit Mackworth Island!

There were lovely views of the water and other islands nearby.

 Sometimes a sailboat skittered past.

 John and I hugged a few trees.

 Then we came upon a little clearing, and we saw the faerie houses!

People passing through had taken sticks and leaves and rocks to build tiny little houses all over the clearing.

I like the pine needle roof on this one.

 I think the faeries would like the lichen mural on this tree.

 One house had a little table nearby.

 Many of the houses had shells decorating the front walk.

 A lovely stone house for a pebble fae.

 Maybe a water sprite might live here.

I thought this house was especially beautiful. There was a small well in the garden, and bits of bark made lovely accents.

 Lovely flower patterns made with catkins and pinecones.

  Pretty stepping stones to welcome the faeries in.

Oh my .. doesn't John know what happens when you fall asleep in a faerie clearing?

I saw a larger house with an occupant! See the chipmunk sitting at the top of the doorway?

 Nice use of seaweed decorating this front garden

 I like the leaf house with the purple flower growing by the front door.

 I liked this one at the edge of the clearing, bordering the green underplanting of the forest.

 The last house we came across had a colorful front garden of flowers and pine twigs.

John and I built a house too, I found a twig of old leaves to use as a roof.

Me and my faerie house.

 The forest beyond the clearing.

The island was full of wildflowers.

 This would make a lovely front garden!

 I loved the tall branchy trees on the island.

 We found a swing!

 Back home again .. and we have two lovely painting we both named "Faerie Island"

This is a close shot of mine.  I took John's painting home, and left mine hanging in his house.

You do not know the academic level of the writer and chances are you will have to spend time tweeking the paper to your professor’s specifications. For that kind of hassle you might as well just write the paper yourself. 123movies

Mrs. Darling was married in white, and at first she kept the books perfectly, almost gleefully, as if it were a game, not so much as a Brussels sprout was missing; but by and by whole cauliflowers dropped out, and instead of them there were pictures of babies without faces. She drew them when she should have been totting up. They were Mrs. Darling’s guesses.

Thucydides, an Athenian, wrote the history of the war between the Peloponnesians and the Athenians, beginning at the moment that it broke out, and believing that it would be a great war and more worthy of relation than any that had preceded it. This belief was not without its grounds. The preparations of both the combatants were in every department in the last state of perfection; and he could see the rest of the Hellenic race taking sides in the quarrel; those who delayed doing so at once having it in contemplation. Indeed this was the greatest movement yet known in history, not only of the Hellenes, but of a large part of the barbarian world — I had almost said of mankind. For though the events of remote antiquity, and even those that more immediately preceded the war, could not from lapse of time be clearly ascertained, yet the evidences which an inquiry carried as far back as was practicable leads me to trust, all point to the conclusion that there was nothing on a great scale, either in war or in other matters.
