This grinning faery says his name is Hegley in the Hedge. He is a springtime goblin who appeared to me other day after I was feeling very relieved to get something that was causing much anxiety out of the way. I just had to paint him!
He is a faery of relief and that joyful laughter that bubbles up with it. Dwelling in hedgerows he helps the first little spring green leaves appear in hedges All who see them feel joy and relief that the cold winter and long nights are fading and spring is on the way!
