Three Wise Fairies

Artwork details: gouache, 7 x 15.5 inches (18 x 39 cm), 2012.

This was the painting for March for my 2012 all-fairy calendar. Three fairies for the third month was the only constraint, but certain numbers tend to remind me of certain concepts, and with three it's the Three Wise Monkeys: 'hear-no-evil, see-no-evil and speak-no-evil'. Of course these fairies are nothing like the wise monkeys: they heard it, they saw it... and they're going to tell everyone about it at the first available opportunity!
