Rapunzel and the Bad Hair Day - Nibblefest

Did you ever wonder if Rapunzel got heartily sick of all that climbing? Up and down, up and down, the constant tugging and pulling...Imagine all the work required to maintain that 'do...just keeping the split ends trimmed was a full-time job! To say nothing of how long it took to blow-dry...I imagine that one day, she just snapped, pulled out the scissors and snip, snip! An emancipated woman!!! Too bad about the prince, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do...

This is my entry in the Nibblefest Art Contest, a themed art contest beginning on the 20th of each month. Please search for NFAC to see more great entries, starting at just 99¢! This month's theme is "Fairy Tales."

This is an original watercolor/mixed media painting, created with Winsor & Newton watercolors, Dr. Martin's Transparent watercolors, and Colerase colored pencils on 140 lb. Arches Aquarelle Coldpress watercolor paper. The image size is 13.75 x 8.5 inches, on a sheet of paper measuring 17 x 12 inches, which leaves a generous margin for matting and framing. (The painting is offered without a mat or frame.) I hope you enjoy looking at my work!
