Wonderful, well-written, charmingly illustrated little book! :-) Great gift for the gardener in your life, or the folkie, or the Goth grandkid - they'll love it! Well packed, quickly shipped, great shopping experience. Hoping this fine Etsy artist will continue writing, as I would love to buy more such books! :-)

Portraits of the Spirits of Nature
My paintings are representations of powerful forces that I sense within myself, in others, and in the world around me. I sometimes think of these paintings as portraits of the spirits of Nature; they reflect my visions of anthropomorphized energies at work in the universe.
I have been inspired by many past and present painters, especially from the early Italian Renaissance, the Symbolists, the Pre-Raphaelites, the Post-Impressionists, the Nabis, Art Nouveau, the Surrealists, and the Magic Realists. There is much work by Visionary, Psychedelic, and self-taught artists that I admire.
In-depth readings on the subjects of herbalism, alchemy, folklore, and mythology, in conjunction with close contact with Nature in my garden, are sources for the subjects of my paintings. I am also the author of "The Haunted Garden: Death and Transfiguration in the Folklore of Plants," which is available in my Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/listing/118819081 .
