If you see the magic . . .



I have long wanted to explore my inner fancy and paint Little Red Riding Hood. Yesterday I did just that . . .



I think I did an ok job. I rather like her I think. Available as a greeting or note card, or as a small print. Message me on mariealicejoan at aol dot com to find out more. Thanks!

So glad to have a chance to catch up with you & your art, Marie! As ever, you've been creating marvelous things. This little girl is soo cute... And I LOVE your princess & the pea girl in a previous post lately--so precious. Wishing a wonderfully creative 2011, dear friend--LOVE YOU LOTS!! ((HUGS))

I love LOVE Little Red Riding Hood. Enormously cute, so that she'd be my favourite drawing of late, even if she wasn't already my favourite fairy tale girl. I have a antique print of her above our bed, which has hung in my bedrooms all my life. Smart, loving, brave, and such a fabulous cloak :) What's not to love about her?
This reminds me, as your princess & the pea one did, that I need to be reading more traditional fairy tales to the lil monsters. The stories that lil G is hearing are more often derivatives or updates, and the substance of the stories that generations of us have grown up on will be gone.
On the purely visual side, I love how the two greens contrast the fab red, and how the brown ties the greens with the environment she'd be traipsing through on her way to Grandma's.

Love, Anne
