Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

My interpretation of the character from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale won an Honorable Mention award among more than 1,000 artworks at the 53rd Annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts Open Show.

“’The devil told you! The devil told you!’ the little man screamed, and he stamped so ferociously with his right foot that his leg went deep into the ground up to his waist. Then he grabbed the other foot angrily with both hands and ripped himself in two.”

Out of the many fairy tales I read as a kid, Rumpelstiltskin left the strongest impression. I found the character compelling because although he was unpleasant and demanded an unfair price, he was being used and cheated. His tantrum at being thwarted was so severe that he destroyed himself.

Signed on front and back, wired and ready to hang. The sides of the canvas are painted black so it can be hung unframed. Sealed with archival varnish.
