Description of the artwork «Elvish Fables»

This oil painting is a beautiful example of fantasy art. It depicts three elven girls in a pond surrounded by dense greenery. The painting creates an atmosphere of mystery and mystery, which can make the viewer imagine what is happening behind the scenes.
The fable is an important element of culture in every nation of the world. It can be told in verse or prose and become an inseparable part of folklore heritage. Is it possible that we can understand tales, legends and fables of elven people?
The painting conveys a sense of harmony, tranquility and magic. The three elves in the center of the composition are an integral part of the pristine landscape. The surface of the pond is touched by light ripples, spreading in wide circles from the figures of the girls, but the water lilies and their leaves are in complete peace, as if the elves are unable to bring any disturbance into the realm of nature, free from human influence. Willow twigs in the background of the canvas close the composition, creating a chambered space in the space.
One of the elves is partially naked, but not at all ashamed of her own nakedness, being in harmony both with her friends and with the forest around her. In the hands of another heroine a water lily is frozen, which she holds out to the viewer, enchanting us with the beauty of the flower. So who are these amazing creatures? Nymphs? Spirits of nature? The guardians of rivers and lakes? Or are they still creatures of the material world? Do they invite us into their wonderful world or guard it from us? What stories do elven fables contain?
