In A Land Not To Too Far Away

Court Painter, in a flight of fancy, has taken to his easel to render an ancient folk tale originating in a Land Not To Too Far Away. These first attempts, he admits, are less than adequate to an underlying traditional telling and is not sure whether the proposed folktale rendered is a fairy tale, a tall tale,a trickster tale, a myth, a dang legend or an out right fib!

You be the judge!
