    Rowena Morrill - "The Shape Changer" Paperback Cover Painting Original Art (Ace Books, 1981). The hazards of temptation are potently portrayed in this exotic illustration by fantasy mistress, Rowena Morrill. This cover graced Keith Laumer's novel, The Shape Changer. In that novel, Sir Lafayette Leary, a rich noble, finds out that he has developed a dubious reputation, and meets the man responsible -- the other Lafayette Leary, a stranger with his face who wants to see him dead. No sooner does a bold adventurer approach a bound beauty, than the floor gives way from beneath him -- and you'll fall for this sumptuous scene yourself! In The Art of Rowena, the artist wrote, "I love the humor in this scene. Obviously the lady is a trap for the hero. I found it an entertaining twist on the classic theme of a hero coming to rescue a maiden in distress." This compelling image is reproduced on page 65 of the book. Painted in acrylic, this wondrous work has an image area measuring 15.5" x 25". The painting is framed and in Excellent condition.
