The Princess

21 Jan


“She picked him up with two fingers, carried him upstairs, and set him in a corner. As she was lying in bed, he came creeping up to her and said, ‘I am tired, and I want to sleep as well as you do. Pick me up or I’ll tell your father.’

With that she became bitterly angry and threw him against the wall with all her might.”

From “The Frog King”, the Brothers Grimm, 1857 edition.

    I’m loving how well your painting ties into the original story. And the expression is perfectly captured. ๐Ÿ˜€
