Quoted "This is a new design style artwork called Naiad. The border was inspired by the work of the wonderful Art Nouveau artist Mucha. In Greek mythology the Naiads were a type of nymph (female spirit) who presided over fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of fresh water. I have combined this myth with a forest fairy and the resulting character is in the painting. I hope you like it." - Anne Stokes -
