Nicky - Chattooga Sprite

<img600*0:stuff/Nicky%20Chattooga-Sprite.png>
Along the Chattooga river are areas where the rafters and boaters paddle their canoes and kayak, and every now and then we had to just stop and let them go by. Nicky watched them now and then as they paddled by.

Nicky - Happy Sprite

<img600*0:stuff/Nicky%20Happy-Sprite.png>

Nicky - Innocence in Green

<img600*0:stuff/Nicky%20Innocence-in-Green.png>
There are times when you can see nothing but innocence in the pose and the demeanor that Nicky expresses. Deep in the green beauty of the river, she sits as if a ruby has taken life from the veins of gems that run through this area and is embraced by the life of the forest around her.

Nicky - Little Mermaid

<img600*0:stuff/Nicky%20Little-Mermaid.png>

Nicky - Tree Sprite

<img600*0:stuff/Nicky%20Tree-Sprite.png>

"Wizard's Candle Fae"

<img600*0:stuff/Wizards-Candle-Fae.png>

"Wizard Revealed"

<img600*0:stuff/Wizard-Revealed.png>

No matter what the day is for true, may your heart be healed, your pain be soothed, your companions be precious and your tears be few.
Blessed thanks to all of my Muses, supporters and fans.

"Lin Hearts Faery"

<img600*0:stuff/Lin-Hearts-Faery.png>

The very cute [Linderel] in a valentine feature.

Some fae are very close to their magical friends, be they wizards, or dragons or merfolk or unicorns. They are companions, flirts, loving helpers and do lots of little things to keep their chosen folk company. Possibly the closest thing to a romantic faery, their passions are just as deep and hot, but are more gentle and attached to specific individuals.
Print Available here: http://www.deviantart.com/print/5181436/


"Aeolynn Fae"

<img600*0:stuff/Aeolynn-Fae.png>

Now and then a bit of extra illumination makes the crystal balls work better.

[Aeolynn] as the Fae reading lamp.

<img600*0:stuff/Nana-Spring-Thaw-Fae.png>

[Jitter] as the marvelous Fae
So what does a wizard do when the snow is too deep and its time to plant the garden? Why, conjure up a Spring Thaw Fae and nurture her to full strength so she can go and clear the snow and ice and warm the soil for planting. Quite obvious. {grins}
Print Available here: http://www.deviantart.com/print/5168678/



"Starr Fyre Fae Puzzle"

<img600*0:stuff/StarrFyreFae-Puzzle.png>

The amazingly beautiful [irulan]

And with any luck, a nicely difficult puzzle.

Starr Fyre Fae are very good for expanding the mind and looking into the universe. Only thing is, the mystic energies they emit can scramble your mind. Think along the lines of psychoactive elixir but in the fae dust from their wings. Even the sheen of musk on their skin can send any ordinary human off on a major soul trip if you touch them. Not everyone has the stability or the sense of self to survive their experiences intact, but those that do, find a level of passion and understanding of their own connections to the universe that is well beyond any ordinary mortal view.
Puzzle Available here: http://www.deviantart.com/print/5166897/




"Nikki Valentine Ice Fae"

<img600*0:stuff/Nikki-Valentine-Ice-Fae.png>


Very rare species of Ice Fae, the Valentine Faery is a bit different from your warmer Valentine Heart Fae, and can sooth a broken heart or break one rather viciously. They are easily aroused and can be great fun or a nightmare depending on how you strike their fancy. Changeable, and quick to anger, they are also extremely passionate and uninhibited if they decide they like you.

One of my little fae muses, [wicked fae mage], for her special valentine request.

"Crystal Fyre Faery Puzzle"

<img600*0:stuff/amyfaepuzzle.png>

Living deep in the gem filled voids of stone and volcanic fissures, the very rarely seen Gem Faery species is quite an experience. They can be incredibly elusive and are able to cast many illusions to lead folk astray.

The marvelous [irulan]

"Tropical Frost Faery Puzzle"

<img600*0:stuff/Tropical-Frost-Faery-Puzzle.png>

A very rare capture, the tropical frost fae is that mischevious creature that rides the polar waves and when it gets deep into the tropics, takes great delight in frosting and playing with the tropical flowers. You can sometimes see their foot prints in frosty pollen as they love to play with the stamens of the large tropical blooms.

The ice loving [Faery] having a ball with a willing lily.

My precious Muse Rose, spirit of the sage and carrier of prayers. The sage smoke carries the needs and prayers of the people to the sky spirits, and as with other natural forces, the vision of beings within the smoke is a common knowledge amongst wizards and shamans.

"Frost Faery"

<img600*0:stuff/Frosty-Faery.png>

One of my dear muses [Faery] who truly has ice for blood I think sometimes, as she gets along quite well nude in the chill of winter. She is a natural for an Ice Fae.

"Wizard's Muse"

<img600*0:stuff/Wizards%20Muse.jpg>


For where are the visions of our art if not in the spirit of the muse? From whence comes the expressive inspiration of our souls if not from the bodies, love and gifts of our muse.

For them is the honor of the work, that through the touch of creation do we bring to man the windows on the divine. It is not the flesh of the art, but the courage, the inner light and shadows, of those that teach us, that lead us and that raise us up to the peaks and yes, throws us into the depths of our art. They are each unique, each precious, each the drive and the fires, the intensity and the power behind our brush, our chisel, our need to capture and experience and share the images that burn in our minds and hearts.

Give them your most pure appreciation and wonder, for they are the very essence of "Art".


My deepest appreciation in honor of the many inspiring souls that have touched my journey in my work and my life. These are a few, and many that are not visible but are surely there.

My dearest Rose, my Goddess of the Muse my own precious.
Dear Misty, a great friend and continually supporting my work and life.
[Faery], dear friend and wondrous model and muse.
[Linderel] Friend and writer, model and beautiful nude muse
Johanna, brilliant artist and delightful friend
[irulan] an old and valued friend and muse, and a darned good adviser
Lovely [Daisy_Sandybanks] wonderful artist and my best nude surfer muse, a dear friend
Moonhawk, a muse for many years and one that certainly helped me develop my love for the mountains and the wonders of the nude in nature.

And so many many more that have touched my life and been part of my work.

to all of you,
Thank you
Marion

<img250*0:stuff/Wizards-Night.png> <img250*0:stuff/Wizards-Night-2.png> <img250*0:stuff/Wizards-Night-3.png>

Its as natural as breathing, it is only skin. A long night of work past, it is time to consider bed and rest.


In support of the respecting and honoring the Muses, how can I ask of my muses to give their bodies to the art, if I am ashamed of mine? Nothing special, nothing amazing, just an old man going to some rest. The Wizard is the magick within, and that never dies. Please take time to also read catsagecat's journal and support the project and drop a respectful and kind note to the muses of my Fae and Muse art pieces showing your support and gratitude for their work.

"Wizard's Burlesque Fae"

<img600*0:stuff/Wizards-Burlesque-Fae.png>

A good friend a local muse here in the mountains, Nichole is having her birthday in a few days, so this is for her. She is just that sort of bubbly daring spirit that delights in fun and dancing and entertaining her friends.


Even though they do not actually wear anything usually, even the fae can be influenced by the art, entertainment and human activities around them. This particular fae was born in an old Vaudeville theater and watched the performers and entertainers do their routines for many years before the theater was left abandoned. She still likes to play the parts for her favorite wizard.

Print Available here: http://www.deviantart.com/print/5048354/


"Wizard's Eros"

<img600*0:stuff/Wizards-Eros.png>


There are of course many forms of love, of ones work, of ones family, of ones mate, of ones life, of ones self. Wizards are no different, only perhaps more aware of the natural flow of life energies and the fires of the unseen passions and pure emotions of the Fae.

My Dear Muse, Rose. http://tolkienmaster.deviantart.com/
One should expect passionate art when working with such a Muse and having Gingersnaps for snacks. :D

"Keeper of the Wizard's Candy"

"Nikki Wicked Fae"

<img600*0:stuff/Nikki-Wiked-Fae.png>

Her very first nude fae, Nikki the rather wicked faery, do not be deceived by her shy demeanor. I have it on good authority she not only bites but is very good at leading her prey astray.

"Wizard's Shy Flutterby"

<img600*0:stuff/Wizards-shy-flutterby.png>

Every true wizard knows that faery are little nature spirits, and nature beings simply do not wear other than what nature gives them, wings and skin and magick. However with all the human developments springing up and taking over the forests and the fields, now and then a young new fae may get confused and influenced by the bright bits of cloth hanging from clothes lines, or caught in the shrub, having been snatched by the playful sylphs, and they get odd ideas of their own image. This little flutterby fae is a bit shy, and having been rescued from a side garden where she had been hiding in the zucchini plants, is unsure and wrapped up in a bit of scarf she found laying about.

The lovely example of Fae is http://bloodovestock.deviantart.com/ who showed such enthusiasm, I could not let it go unreplied to.

"Wizard's Fire Succubus"

<img600*0:stuff/Wizards-Fire-Succubus.png>

Sometimes a wizard needs a more persuasive means of influencing the nobility or the keeper of the treasury. A beautiful and sensual fire succubus can be just the thing to bring them dreams and experiences that make them more amenable to funding magical projects.

"Glitter Frost Fae"

<img600*0:stuff/Glitter-Frost-Fae.png>

One of the really bright and flashy fae, the glitter frost faery is that flash of brilliant sun reflecting off the frost, and the sheer beauty of the female form is nearly hidden under the shimmer of the ice crystals.

"A Wizard's Rose"
Drawn from what dreams,
the memories of gentle youth,
deep sweet thrum of blood through strong hearts,
the breath of fragrance in the very skin.

Arise the passions of latent fires,
warming the belly and soul,
bringing forth the renewed waters,
embracing the spring once more,
and winter melts away from old bones.

Wizard at Rest

<img600*0:stuff/Wizard-at-Rest.png>

Then in the night as the quiet of the world settles around, a time to relax, to read a bit and have a nice tea with a splash of spiced rum.

Whispers of tales from far away, or stories penned in the fields of creative souls, presented in crisp pages, dancing words and engaging thoughts.

The art has many forms, in images, words, dance, the line of a string, the beat of a drum. A woman’s curve, a man’s strike up on heated iron, the silver throat of a flute.

The true wizards in the world are the creators, the dancers, the potters and painters, the naked bodies on rocks and ledge, the eye in the camera and the brush on the page. Magic is within us, if only we accept our gifts, and let them lead us to that which gives us life, not a belief, not a faith, but the fires and shadows, the joys and pains within ourselves.

The Gentle Night of Dreams is one of the many realms of Wizards, where they rest and find new strength. It flows from the natural world and the spirits of the Muses, that bless us with their beauty and their thoughts, their love and their generous gifts. Without them our art suffers and our visions fade. Yet by their touch, they bring renewal and visions, the very weave of creation to our hands, our touch, our movements and our dance. They Journey with me in the dark and the light, in the dim summers twilight filled with fairy laughter, and in the brilliant shimmer of snow on the mountains, as they run naked in the snow, and glide upon the icy winds.

Magic is the touch of the spirit on page and canvas, or in the thrill of a guitar moving the heart. When you can, be the Muse to another, and be willing to accept the Muse given by those that love you, that care for you, and that dance for you. And be generous in your love for them, for they are our family and our clan, our spirit and our souls.

Precious Companion

<img600*0:stuff/Precious-Companion.png>

Many Mystical folk have certain companions they are particularly fond of. Familars for witches, pets that are unusually intelligent and wise, and sometimes a very dear companion that is closer and more precious than most folk could understand. A soul that is happy to be with you and journey with you and advise you and share its own spirit and beauty with you. Perhaps this is what a muse is to an artist.

The ubiquitous nude with guitar.

Little Assistant

<img600*0:stuff/Littleassistant.jpg>

Every photographer needs an assistant, sometimes to hold things, sometimes to help with costumes, and sometimes, all you need is someone to patiently stand there while you fiddle with lights.

Wizard Guitar

<img600*0:stuff/Wizard-Guitar.jpg>

While we were over at Thea's shooting Rae in the snow and doing some thematic images, I picked up the guitar we were using as a prop and figured, why not. Now understand, I do not play the guitar, keyboards are more my style, but its a fun image I think, and just the thing while you are waiting on your model to thaw out from being in the snow in the nude.

Bamboo Frost Fairy

My lovely friend and most excellent nude model, [irulan] as the curious little frost fairy that came in a nifty bamboo box. I think she may be wondering what her house is doing in Kris Kringle's bag, and I know Kris is a bit surprised by the contents. {Grin}
