Rapunzel and a "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 for the monthly Nibblefest Art Contest on eBay, which is a themed contest that begins on the 20th of each month and ends on the 27th. This month's theme is "Fairy Tales." Search NFAC to see all the entries. Starting bids must be just 99 cents, so this is a great time to purchase art at a bargain price!

This is an original watercolor/mixed media painting. It was created with Winsor & Newton watercolors, Dr. Martin's Transparent watercolors, and Colerase colored pencils. It was painted 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!
