This original felted painting of Tyler is a detailed felt portrait of the young boy in The Sun Fairy, as he reaches out to grab hold of a magical sundrop. A wool loop is attached to the back, making this piece ready to hang. The illustration is painted with wool, using nothing more than a rainbow of wool, felting needles, and a whole lot of creativity.
