from “the snow queen” by hans christian andersen ~ firey haired gerda goes in search of her friend kay, but the river lulls her asleep with dreams of endless summer.

winter is all around her. from the tall pines to the small white sun. she happened upon some flowers daring to brave the cold & a boat willing to take her where she wanted to go…

the original painting is india ink, watercolor, & oil pastel

i don’t know if it’s because my grandpa was a navy man or because my moon’s in scorpio, but i am crazy about sailor suits.
