Heaven and Earth

In this painting I have tried to depict a woman's innocence as she sits upon the faery mound and prays to the heavens. Is it a magical spot where the ancients meet? I will leave that up to your imagination!

The difference between those careless masques of heathen gods, or unbelieved, though mightily conceived visions of fairy, witch, or risen spirit, and the earnest faith of Dante's vision of Paradise, is the true measure of the difference in influence between the willowy banks of Avon, and the purple hills of Arno.

John Ruskin (1819-1900) speaking on Shakespeare.
