There is an innocence and fun that comes with revisiting childhood stories. Mother Goose nursery rhymes and fairy tales from both the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen evoke smiles and nostalgia from even the most quieted adult imaginations. In my work Storybook Land, I have attempted to capture many of my favorite childhood tales in a whimsical view of a fantasy realm where these adventures are true, and the colorful characters involved in them all might exist.
Look closely and see that here, there is, indeed, an old woman who lives in a shoe and Jack and Jill did go up that troublesome hill. It is also the case that giants tend to live at the top of beanstalks and Goldilocks truly had an unfortunate run-in with three unsuspecting bears. Join me to fully explore this magical place. There are over 30 references to popular nursery rhymes and fairy tales rendered into this composition.
Think back and let the child inside you revel in their rediscovery and give the children in your life a chance to enjoy your telling of the stories. I hope this painting brings you the happiness I felt in its creation, and as always, I want to thank you all for sharing my adventure in art.
