She spends her days teaching the Lichen Pixies how to paint the different varieties of lichen that grow in the woods. Gently guiding the Flower Fairies with the proper techniques for encouraging Spring buds to bloom.
She is a Queen of the Forest. Forests can be huge and therefore require many different Queens to help guide all of the different beings it requires to maintain a forest’s health. I met this particular Queen while exploring the coastal woodland in the Pacific Northwest. She declined to tell me her name, since apparently it would make her too vulnerable. Luckily for me, she allowed me to quickly sketch my impression of her, which I later used as a reference to paint this portrait.
This Queen’s message is about connected leadership. Meaning, although she is in a place of power she still makes it a point to stay connected with her community. She recognizes the interdependence of masters and students. Knowing that she too, follows the lead of a higher order.
