Happy Easter everyone!|
I'm celebrating by doing lots of painting, lol. I'm working on my big piece with all the butterfly-faeries. I'm still trying to decide which of the Fairy Tale series I should begin next - I really would like to do Rumpelstiltskin, or maybe I will do Snow White & Rose Red first. As far as I can tell, it is just a coincidence that Snow White (from Snow White and Rose Red) has the same name as the heroine in my first Fairy Tale piece (Snow White and the Apple). Hmmmm...
Snow White & Rose Red are two girls who live in a cottage and one day a bear comes to see them, and asks for shelter. A few other things happen and then in the end the bear's fur comes off and he's really a handsome prince (who would have thought?) and Snow White marries him and Rose Red marries his brother, lol. I think I might put the bear in the painting, or maybe just the two girls in the cottage with one red rosebush and one white rosebush. Yeah, I think I'll paint this one first! Besides, I want to consult with Matt (he's at work) about Rumpelstiltskin first since that story is close to his heart and he probably has interesting opinions about how an illustration would look!
First, I'm going to take a shower, then I'm going to paint!
