After exploring the curves and heavy contrast of the wrought iron elements in my last canvas, I had some fun ideas for this piece. I wanted this woman and the painting as a whole, to have an elegant feel. I always enjoy the dark sunken shapes created when using gothic windows for background to my lady faces, and also used quite a bit of ornamental filigree for this design. I created a headpiece which may be interpreted as a tiara or crown for this young lady to wear as she stares off into the distance, leaving the viewer wondering, “What’s on her mind?”

Essentially, this has been the theme for the entire series, and I have made it a point to create unique eyes for each of my ladies. I wanted a glassy look for her eyes and chose a more youthful woman to lend to the narrative. It wasn’t until after completing the painting, did I begin to feel a story unraveling before my eyes.

Young and innocent, this little princess has been granted a life of luxury and elegance. Born into glamour and opulence, one may look at her as very fortunate. Some may look at her as an entitled little brat, and shame her out of jealousy of her wealth and power. Other girls her age might make fun of her or avoid interacting with her because of her alleged “status.”

Whatever she was born into, or whatever anyone was born into for that matter, is beyond their control. Yes, it is tough for those who are stricken with poverty, but there are many issues that are faced by young people coming of age who have been born into wealth and royalty. There is a whole rarely spoken set of issues based on societal expectations and a life under constant scrutiny. Born with “everything”, but wishing she just had a “normal” childhood… walking on egg shells through what were meant to be some of the most carefree years of her life.

This canvas illustrates the moment this young girl relives her painfully choreographed “perfect” childhood in her mind. Flashes of designer clothes and luxury vehicles are shadowed by demanding scripted puppeteers choking every ounce of true joy out of her lifeless, glamorous childhood. Drowned in militant orders and always hiding behind a fake smile, here she is pictured transcending beyond the facade of the fairy tale her life is. It’s time now for her to find her true self.
