Twilight Lilies (IF: Giant)

"Twilight Lilies"
watercolor & colored pencil  |  6x6 inches

{  available as a print here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/51021686/6x6-open-edition-print-twilight-lilies  }

I have always wondered what it would feel like to be the size of a flower fairy.  That all flowers and things would be giant!  I mean I look at a lily on my walk and yeah, they're a large flower.  But can you imagine being small enough, and them large enough, that you could sit in one completely?  What a great thought.  Heh, I can ramble about this all day.  

About the piece, wanted to get into some darker colors and do something I haven't done in a while....a glowing light of hope.  :)
