Forbidden Love


Original Medium: Ink and Watercolor on Watercolor Paper

Original Size: 11 x 14

Year of Completion: 2002




A mortal falls in love with one of the fairy folk. Separated by worlds, culture, and a disapproving family, these two still cannot resist the love that draws them together. Here the fairy is shown with her finger to the lips of mortal lover, trying to sooth his worries about their love and their uncertain future.

This image was painted in the style of Arthur Rackham, a famous artist before our time who illustrated children’s books, fairy tales, myths, and works by Shakespeare and Edgar Allen Poe. Most of his work was drawn in ink with a wash of watercolor, which is the style mimicked in this artwork. This painting was completed in 2002.
