Everything's Coming Up Roses

Everything's coming up roses (or at least the grass is showing), so glad spring has arrived! These little white beauties were a present that I have been enjoying for the last week. They brightened my spirit, as roses are my favorite flower.

Muffins have also been popping up lately. Pumpkin & Apple Muffins in pretty tartan liners.

I am looking forward to the loveliness of spring... 
and wishing a Happy Spring to you!

Red, or Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

Red, or Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf   11"x14"  Acrylic on paper

I have been a longtime fan of fairytales and especially the Brothers Grimm, so when I was approached by Draw a Dot to work on a collaboration project of 4 pieces from the Haute Couture S/S 2015, I knew that I wanted to dress classic fairytale characters in them.

I was asked to choose four dresses from the Haute Couture show, and illustrate them in my own interpretations. So the first is Brothers Grimm classic, Little Red Riding Hood, wearing a Christian Dior piece.

Mr. Big Bad Wolf is speaking to Red Riding Hood about a shortcut he knows to Grandmother's house. His intentions seem less than trustworthy. 

Happy Spring!
