'Fae' originally began life as a drawing of an Arab-type horse intended to be one of the Precious Stone Collection. For some reason though, I wasn't entirely happy with the initial sketch and I very nearly rubbed her out! But a split second change-of-heart interfered and instead I tucked her away and forgot about her. I stumbled across her image again several months later, and finally she told me that she knew who she was... At last I was able to finish her. If the faery folk of myths and children's stories have horses, I like to imagine they look something like this, with the colours of rainbows tangled in their windswept manes.
