Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel   22"x17"  Watercolor and colored pencils on paper

The famous fairy tale siblings, Hansel and Gretel, must have known happier times in their childhood before they were abandoned in the woods with a loaf of bread. This is my rendition of their story, at that time. 

Due to my own Dutch heritage, I altered the story's setting from Germany to the Netherlands. I'm sure that the Brothers Grimm wouldn't begrudge me the opportunity to dress these sweet children in wooden clogs (klompen) and place a windmill in the landscape. 

Welkom to my interpretation of Grimm's Hansel and Gretel

Mr. Bombus is off to spend a pleasant morning with his sweetheart Miss Tulip and her relations. 

This happy little springtime bumble is as busy as a bee, flying from tulip to tulip, discussing the weather and keeping them current with the latest buzz. He has a busy day ahead of him, but thanks to of his toils, we are all able to enjoy the floral landscape and the beauty of all the Miss Tulips in the world. Our hats off to you Mr. Bombus!

There are few things in this world that are so delightful to the heart as a handwritten letter. 
Imagine how much more delightful that experience would be if it were written and delivered by a rabbit in a pinafore.
