24x36” Oil on Wood
"Little Red Riding Hood," an intriguing oil on panel, presents a modern tableau that breathes new life into the age-old tale. Here, Red Riding Hood stands at the center, poised with a confident air that belies the traditional narrative of innocence. Her vibrant red cloak billows around her, a bold splash of color that captures the essence of her spirit—fiery, undeterred, and enigmatic.

She treads upon a twisting, checkered path that weaves through a forest of bare trees, their branches forming a delicate filigree against a twilight sky. The path does not simply lead her through the woods but seems to pulse with its own rhythm, suggesting that Red Riding Hood's journey is as much internal as it is through the physical space.

Observing from the sidelines, a figure reminiscent of the archetypal wolf, dons a top hat and leans casually against a tree, holding a cane that continues the checkered motif. His presence is ambiguous—neither overtly threatening nor benign—adding a layer of sophistication to the narrative and inviting us to reconsider his role in Red Riding Hood's story.

A book clutched in Red's hand hints at knowledge and the power of one's own story, reinforcing the theme of autonomy and the rewriting of one’s own tale. The painting evokes a sense of quiet tension and anticipation, suggesting that the story about to unfold on this canvas is one of empowerment and revelation.

This piece offers a rich, symbolic narrative that challenges the viewer to look beyond the familiar and find depth and complexity within the archetypes we think we know. "Little Red Riding Hood" is a captivating choice for those who appreciate art with a narrative that encourages a deeper look at the roles we assume and the paths we choose.
