"After a night of dancing in the moonlight, granting wishes, and weaving sweet dreams for children, the fairies find a quiet spot to rest and dream their own dreams of love."
While this image was inspired by an old photograph of Mary's daughter, Lesa (the second of three daughters), reposing in a California garden, it eventually took on a likeness very different from the original model. "Sometimes," Mary says, "A painting will take on a life of it's own, as it did in this case. I'll always wonder to whom this lovely face belongs, that pushed it's way on to my canvas. The sense of serenity and happy introspection slows me down and says - rest with me a moment. Feel the wonder that surrounds you. Listen to the birds and wind in the trees, smell the flowers. The world is a lovely place! "
