Without even deciding or thinking about it, this month has turned into fairy tale sketches.  I have no idea why but there it is.  It just started coming out of me and I will go with it.  Fairy tales hold an incredible fascination for me  The dark and scary underbelly of them was dangerous and titillating to me when I was little.  The Red Shoes-oh, the terror, dancing shoes that would not stop dancing until they were chopped off her feet.  That still makes icy fingers of dread run up my spine.  And the color RED -it shoes up so often, red ridinghood, rose red the red shoes on and on...that haunting blood red against a black and white background.....tha'ts how I would illustrate those tales
