If - perennial

As I am still very busy preparing my exhibition in September, which will show illustrations for a fairy tale, I did not think I could post anything this week.

But thanks to Susan Sorell Hill who, in her post, refers to fairy tales as perennial stories that deal with the Journey of Life, I decided to give you a glimpse into my fairy tale with the above illustration. Here the brother of the hero desperately wants to eat after a long struggle and the task both he and the hero had to face seemingly completed by now. But he doesn't know that these tempting pears are not what they seem to be...

  2. Very tempting! Will you post the whole series, or a walkthrough of the exhibition, for those of us not able to travel to see it?

  5. The way you rendered the shiny leaves is brilliant. I'd be tempted by these pears too!

  6. I am completely overwhelmed by your reactions to my pears!
    @ AHAviews and Elizabeth: I will be glad to show you the rest of the book and/or some details of the exhibition, as soon as it will be finished. As this is still just a work in progress, you might catch another glimpse in my post for "lesson" (eye). This actually is part of the book, too.
