red riding hood illustration

I was so excited when I received a package in the mail yesterday from my amazingly talented friend, Brizida Ahrnsbrak.

My heart sank when I saw that it was broken.  The illustration of Little Red Riding Hood is so sweet and perfect and is a gift for my little Maja.  The drawings on the left are preliminary sketches she did to show the progress.

I don’t really know what to do with it or how I can fix it, but I haven’t given up yet.  There’s got to be a way to fix it, right?

Brizida has done a few more illustrations for our family over the years and I cherish them.  She has such a unique and beautiful style.  I will be sharing more of her work with you in the future.

    That is such a treasure! It’s too bad that it’s broken, although it looks kind of neat like that- what if you hung it in two pieces, just close to each other?

  2. Beautiful illustration! Such as shame it got broken. Does she sell her work online? If you, on which website?

  3. D-lyn:

    You know there is a sweet feeling to that illustration even broken. When I first saw it I thought “what a treasure find” I thought it was a vintage piece that was treasured and displayed purposefully even though broken because it was so much adored. I say mount the pieces just as you have them pictured here. It is just darling!
