2nd Prize winner in the Dunedin International Airport Art Awards
This was a painting I recently finished. It was an art challenge held by the New Zealand Art Guild. Four things ha to be incorporated in an artwork, they were:
innocence, orange, umbrella and triangle.
Here is Little Red Riding Hood (the innocent) although she doesn’t look it here…with the Big Bad Wolf who has offered her shelter under his umbrella as it has started to snow again.
She is on her way to take some fruit (orange amongst them) to her elderly Grandma who lives in a cottage deep in the forest.
I wanted to interpret ‘triangle’ in the three character relationship i.e. Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandma and the Big Bad Wolf. Alternatively sections of the umbrella are triangular in shape.
