“The Green Muse” Fairy…

"The Green Muse" Absinthe Fairy

Just a little something to make you smile…

“Absinthe Fairies” are very strange little creatures, and they tend to hang out with very strange human beings. Unfortunately most of these fairies succumb to the very drink they seduce us with.

Absinthe, the green ruin, the green fairy, is an anise-flavored spirit, became popular in 19th and early 20th century Paris. The “Absinthe Fairy”… poets are seduced by them, artists, and writers alike. You can see in her eyes the life she leads. Beware!

This is an original ACEO done in graphite pencil and colored pencil on bristol. (ACEO’s are very collectible baseball sized cards which are always 2.5″ x 3.5″)
