All's Well That Ends Well...

New Design!
All's Well That Ends Well
A lovely sentiment in these times.
This play was a bit of a problem to me, as it has a sweet and fairytale-like concept, but winds up with bed-swapping and a rather forced marriage. Sounds like a plot line off a modern romantic comedy...

At a glance, it's a girly wedding cake topper of an illustration.
Until you look a little closer at how our Bertram is being held in place for the posed kiss.
The title implies a little addendum - "All's Well That Ends Well (I suppose...)"
Bertram's not exactly a prize, and Helena is clever but for her dubious taste in men.
I guess we'll have to hope for the best for them!

The flora and banners are all aimed at distracting the viewer from the uncomfortable situation, fun and frippery- as with my Much Adoe About Nothing.
It really is themed after a cake topper, I admit.

Available soon on prints, cards and more.
