The Littlest Queen
9" x 12" (16" x 19" framed)
Oil on panel

This painting commemorates the act of putting on the attire and the "public face" when going out to face the world. Sometimes our role as an authority figure is new to us or we feel out of place with society's expectations. No Matter! We must pretend to have "it" together no matter what embarrassing thing is going on around us. No matter how we might desperately desire to remove ourselves from the adornment that entraps us we must make the best of the situation.
