Grimm and Other Folk Tales : The Quotes

One of the central ideas of my show was that I wanted to provide an experience for people. I wanted whoever came to see the show to be able to leave with a richer understanding of art, the process, and of the stories themselves.

One of the ways I tried to do this was through the use of quotes by people who had a much better grasp of the English language. With out further ado, here are the pieces paired with the quotes I picked.

* * *

The Prince in the Tree
from the Old Woman in the Wood


The Glass Coffin
from Snow White


The Princess and the Dragon
from The Four Clever Brothers


Little Red Riding Hood
from Little Red Riding Hood

Hansel and Gretel
from Hansel and Gretel


The Nine Peahens
from The Nine Peahens


The Death and Life of the Beast
from Beauty and the Beast


Ivan and the Fire Bird
from Tsarevitch Ivan, the Fire Bird and the Gray Wolf


The Troll
from The Three Billy Goats


Daga and the Trolls
from Dag and Daga, and the Flying Troll of Sky Mountain

Prints are available! Visit my Etsy store! It's under construction at the moment, I'll be adding more to it but I've got all of the matted 8 x 10 prints available. The prints turned out perfect and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality. They were the best seller of opening night. We sold out quickly of several but more are on the way!

Your quote-and-painting parings were a brilliant idea, and I'm quite certain that if I'd been able to go to your show, they would have brought tears to my eyes.

So beautiful. Marvelous!


I love this sentence:
The tale is a lie; what it tells is true.
;-) Believe Cody! Nice pics! As I told you, take care!

Pretty sure C. S. Lewis wins the 20th century.

Eeek. I'm aflutter, as I've got The Rabbit Room bookmarked, and you bookmarked... and suddenly worlds collided. I've just been devouring loads of Lewis and Tolkien bios, etc. Your work right now dovetails wonderfully with what I have been reading.

It's fun when little things like that happen. Your work is really, really beautiful. I love what Andrew Peterson wrote about you.

Feels lovely'. Is excellence an item to look and quantify, is magnificence an inclination to detect or is excellence a plan to attempt? 야설
