My husband, Rob took these “house portraits” of the dwellings in the morning or evening light, depending on their orientation. As you can see, each artist has interpreted the Fairy House theme in a vastly different way. More photographs of other houses can be seen on posts #1 and #2.

  1. This has been such a delightful – and highly inspiring – series of blogs; thank you so much, Salley; and Rob, for the perfectly-lit photographs. The naming of fairy-houses is another talent to look out for! I am day-dreaming of an event such as this taking place in a number of venues I can think of in my own neighbourhood here on Salt Spring Island, BC, Canada. We do already have permanently installed fairy doors here there and everywhere – why not make an annual event that encourages entrants’ creativity, and draws appreciative visitors to one’s own neck of the woods. I have been wondering if your Birds of Beebe Woods was hung somewhere for this event too – that’s a masterpiece (probably not weatherproof enough to leave installed for more than one day). Your emails are always an uplift to my day.

    • Thanks Usha, It sounds like you will be getting something going in your community. Start planning for next summer now!
      As for the Birds of Beebe Woods piece, it’s in Colorado at the moment: July 9 – August 31, 2013. Birds of Beebe Woods will be included in New Legacies: Contemporary Art Quilt Exhibition at the Lincoln Center Art Gallery, Fort Collins, CO.

  2. Thank you for such awe inspiring works of fantasy! Just wish I lived on the east coast to be able to see these creations up close and personal.
