I have always had a passion for fairytales. They are so loaded with symbology and subject matter. This is one of my first encaustic paintings. I made it back in 2002 and titled it "Fairytale". The reason I am posting it here today is because it relates to a large outdoor installation project I am working on for Art Grows Here 2011, which is one reason I haven't been posting here. I don't want to reveal my work-in-progress just yet but I thought I'd give you a hint and something to look at. Enjoy!
