Sweet Magical Moments and Fairy Fantastical Fun!

"A Fairy Magical Moment"   12"x18" Oil Pastel   copyright 2011
Magical moments can happen just about anytime! They're those special times when the unexpected happens making for an awesome and magical experience! That's part of the inspiration behind my latest mini...along with just plain fairy fun!  I thought it was the perfect description of when a sweet bluebird sits perched on this fairies finger as he sings a "tweet" song...a fairy magical moment indeed!  Here's a peek at the up close and personals...the side by side comparison and the big reveal!

Tweet! Tweet! Oh, so sweet!
Believe in the power of sprinkle cookies and fairy magical moments!
The after and the before...and the Big Reveal!

This has definitely been one of my "faves" to work on...maybe because of that connection to magical moments!  I have a quote on one of the walls in my studio nest that says, "We do not remember days, we remember MOMENTS!"  To me, so true...and every now and than we can add the word "magical" in front of moments...a rare and fantastical memory! 
One of my most special "moment memories" is the day that my Mom, (who I miss more than words can say), my Daughter Emily and I spent the day on the beach in Carlsbad, CA.  My Mom created a memory book for my daughter and a pic from that day is in the book...I took a quick snapshot of the page with the caption that my Mom used to describe that moment!
 I think the other power was the power of love!  Definitely this is one of my magical moments as I can still feel that day...still feel the love of my Mom and the time that we shared and know that this was a magical moment!

What sweet "magical moment" or "moments" do you have...that bring a smile to your face, take you to a different place and fill your world with sunshine?

This is gorgeous. I love all the details! Magical is one of my favorite words. :) A magical moment for me was being left alone in the room after my first child was born and feeling a flood of gratitude for life. Thanks for your comment on My Blog.
