Schneewittchen (Snow White in German): Neglected Child

250.00

10"x20" Original acrylic painting on BFK Rives Rag Paper.  Frame included.

I created this painting for the 2016 "Grimm's Fairy tale Art Show" in Portland, Oregon.  Here is why I chose to reinterpret the Snow White fairy tale:

After rereading Snow White, I noticed that there is no mention of how alone and sad this child must have felt as she grew up without a mother and in the shadow of the wicked queen, her stepmother. Surely, Snow White was neglected. How did she make it without much love or attention? How could she grow up strong and confident after being abandoned? I know people who have suffered much less and are still trying to grow self-worth.  My painting gives attention to this neglected child.
