Terra Bidlespacher the artist for The Daughter of Frost Kickstarter project sent me the first finished page for this whimsical Fairy Tale. It is the Woodcutter and his wife making a snow family as Jack Frost looks on.
Together in the morning light, they rolled snowballs and built three snow people. One was the Woodcutter, the other was his wife, and the smaller was their snow child that they never had. Arm in arm they looked at the snow family and smiled, lost in the memory of what they might have had. The wife cried small tears of sadness. “I am sorry my dear husband, I know you mean well. I just wish for a child so I can see you glad.”
The Woodcutter smiled and kissed his wife on the check, “Do not worry my dear wife, we have lived a good life and one day we will get our reward. I love you deeply and wish for no more.”
