I have two contributions to the show, the first one based on Little Red Riding Hood, but I wanted her more of an adventuring rogue instead of a little girl. My other painting features a gnarly old tree that produces all these poisoned apples that are fed to the fair maidens. It looks like some soul has met their end there!

I will be there tonight for a little bit after 6:00 and I'm looking forward to what everyone has created.
