Peter Pan

  • Posted Feb. 19, 2010 by Lynda Viewed 752 times

We've recently acquired some new artwork by a local artist., Debra McFarlane. We now have 8 of her pictures. She illustrates children's books and many of her pictures are of fairy tale or fantasy characters.

Peter Pan is a character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie (1860–1937). A mischievous boy who can fly and magically refuses to grow up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang the Lost Boys, interacting with mermaids, Indians, fairies and pirates, and from time to time meeting ordinary children from the world outside. In addition to two distinct works by Barrie, the character has been featured in a variety of media and merchandise, both adapting and expanding on Barrie's works.

      What a great painting! Debra certainly captured the magical and whimsical nature of Peter Pan. Everyone should have a reminder in their home that they should never grow up!
