Elves on the Loose!

Picked up this painting at the local thrift store today. As you can see, a dramatic mythological tale is unfolding, as two elves try to rope themselves up a unicorn. The title of the painting is, appropriately enough, "Elves and Unicorn." I know this because there is a label attached to the back with the artist's name, Michelle Pincus, and the title. Apparently this was entered into a competition at the LA County Fair at some point, but no date is listed. And, even thought Michelle's elves look more like gnomes, kudos to her for this excellent piece of work. Now, why exactly gnomish elves would be tormenting a gentle magical unicorn in this way, I'll leave for you to ponder.

Oooooooo, I LOVE it!

It's very Matisse-esque, with even more creep-factor!
