A Bargain Kept by robrey A Bargain Kept by robrey
Oil, 18 x 24 inches

I wanted to create a story with this image. I'm drawing on many stories and fairy tales from The Frog Prince to Ulysses' encounter with Circe in The Odyssey to clue the viewer into what might be going on here. A shadowy sorceress is seen here with a few of her accoutrements. It's not a large leap to guess that this frog of unusual size may have not always been a frog. But who's that in the mist beyond? Is it someone spying upon her activities or an unfortunate soul forced to come and keep their end of a bargain?

Beautiful. Something about her expression, and the silhouette in the background, makes me feel like they're going to have to go on an unfortunate quest of some kind together. No idea why, but I like it.
