For Monday Art Day: Hair

rapunzelgrrlWhy are so many of the young women in fairy tales blondes? Everyone knows blondes have more fun, brunettes are clever and pleasant and red heads are dangerous. Wouldn’t it be just natural for all those clever, lovely and gentle young women to be brunette? Seems that way to me. Not that I’m prejudiced or anything…

Beauty and the Beast and Rapunzel were my favourite fairy tales. I even named my favourite cat Rapunzel. She was the only one of her litter to come up with long hair. It was a mess to look after but after one really bad time with thick chunks of tangled/ matted hair it seemed to grow just a bit shorter (except for the tail) and then it was never so awfully tangled again.
