to thine own self be true


a fairytale princess rides a horse through a forest at night

My painting of Elsa, my warrior princess alter ego. Getting in touch with my inner child.

If your life was a fairy tale, who would you be? Damsel in distress? Knight errant? Valkyrie? Big Bad Wolf?

But who would you like to be, if you could choose?
