I love reading the original Grimm's fairy tales to my children. I like to dramatize the scary evil characters until their little chins drop. Come on.... I know I am not alone.
I recently read Hansel and Grethel to them and I still can't get over how the Father would pick his new bride over his children, but I imagine that kind of stuff still goes on today. This painting was inspired by Hansel and Grethel lost in the woods after being coaxed into taking a nap, only to awaken cold and alone. Up on ebay at .99cents.
