The Goblin's Locket
is not only an enchanting fantasy artwork that is full of love and yet so sad, it also comes with its own little story that does this wonderful painting more justice than I ever could with my own words.
The goblin picked up the locket from the desk in a stupor of sadness and numb pain. Inside was a picture of the his mistress, beautifully, carefully rendered. He had been a fool to think such thoughts as he had, to hope such hopes. The goblin fled the tower in desperation, in despair, in utter sorrow. He spent his remaining days wandering aimlessly among the forests, among the trees, forever solitary except for the locket that he kept with him.
