Red Riding Hood and Wolf

Red Riding Hood and her lifelong friend.

2017  Acrylic  30.5 x 39″

Red Riding Hood and her friend, Wolf, travel the forests together.  Blue line drawings of birds, insects and plants populate the foreground tree which frames the work.  Are they thoughts, decoration, or plans in the mind of the Goddess?  Star shaped cutouts in the leafy canopy remind us of the sky and sun above the trees, and with the moon in the upper left corner, also remind us that time is fleeting, but all times are one.  Birds flit like messengers from the subconscious in this subversive feminist retelling of the popular fairy tale.   For purchase information:
