The Miller's Daughter

 This is the last in series I did of the Fairy Tale heroines. I started her the same time I started Briar Rose and Cinderella. I believe that was back in Fall of 07. She has sat on a board for three years, mostly finished. A friend's interest in the series renewed my  desire to complete the detail work, as this Heroine from Rumplestilskin was one of her favorites.
The Miller's Daughter, first placed in the impossible situation of spinning straw into gold, strikes a bargain with a small strange man who demands her first born as payment for his help, with the condition that she is free of the contract if she can guess his name.
The poor girl, now the Queen, is shown holding her child and glancing at the place where the funny little man once stood. Apparently she guessed correctly.

Oh, she is so gorgeous! You do know how amazing you are, right? Not just kind of. I wish I had even a quarter of the talent you have. Sigh.

Thanks little boo. It's silly that this one just sat for three years on a board under my work table with only a few hours worth of detail work left to go. Sigh. But now she's done and I'm a dork.
be good.
