Gerda’s Journey

This piece is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale “Snow Queen” and the scene in which the main character Gerda travels through frozen lands on top of a reindeer.

I wanted to step away from the regular icy theme of using white and light blue and instead I’ve opted for a warmer pink mixed with a midnight blue. The result is a delicious landscape is topped with some creamy icing. No joke, it looks scrumptious.
