Little Red Hen

littleredhen_joellegebhardt2013

I’m experimenting with a new artistic style, a combination of embroidery and drawing. The title of this piece is, “Don’t Mess with Little Red”. It’s based on my favourite children’s story The Little Red Hen. The moral of the story is basically, “he who does not work, does not eat”. If you aren’t familiar with it there are many variations online. I’ve decided to portray the moment when the hen has finished baking her loaf of bread after a long day of work. She stands on top of it with determination and confidence. Trust me, you would not want to pick a fight with this chicken!
