Red, Wiser


This is a pencil and colored-pencil drawing. It began as a copy of a photo of a famous statue. As the drawing progressed, it looked less and less like the statue and more like a theme that keeps cropping up in my writing.

In prose poems and a short story (all incomplete) I have returned again and again to the topic of Red Riding Hood and how her experience with the wolf changed her. What was Red like after being freed by the Huntsman? Surely she was no longer the trusting innocent who set off into the woods alone…
