The Merry Puppet

The Merry Puppet, 20 x 40, oil on linen, detail

This is a detail of my painting  The Merry Puppet. The painting will be shown at CK Contemporary Gallery.

The Adventures of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi 1883 is one of the creepiest children's stories I've ever read. I love it!

The mild Walt Disney movie animation was released in theaters in 1940.  It was initially a box office disaster.

In 1939 Milton Bradley created this board game based on Disney's motion picture.The box top depicts images of Pinocchio and his protector Jiminy Cricket.
