This is my entry for the Crazy Amigo Challenge "Do You Believe in Fairy Tales". It is a digital collage I made using an image of Little Red Riding Hood (from The Vintage Moth) and a photo I took of some very mysterious trees in San Francisco recently. I erased out the background and added digital highlights to give it an eerie look.
We all loved fairy tales as children but it is interesting to read the stories again as adults and discover the hidden, more "mature" meanings behind them. On of my favorite books is "Women Who Run With The Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, which deals with the mythology and symbolism behind fairy tales.
