Grimm's The Frog Prince by lunarsparks Grimm's The Frog Prince by lunarsparks
Wanted to illustrate a Grimm's fairytale for the longest time and I had this image in my head based on the memory of reading the story as a child. Recently read the story again to make sure my memory was right ... and I hadn't remembered how much of a brat the princess in the story was. Plus the frog wasn't kissed so he could turn into a prince, but smashed against a wall ... nice!! It seems to me he should have left while he could.

I haven't had a chance to look deeply at this; but the ribbons in her dress make me think of dragonflies :D

Thank you very much. I'm pleased you think so. I wanted to give the frog more attention than he may have otherwise had.

Thank you. I originally thought of it as on ground level but wanted to get the viewer into it as well reaching for the ball.

Beautiful colors and wonderful reflections. The optical 'puzzle' drew me in.
