“Eligible Maiden” sold
by Carolee Clark
10″ x 10″
acrylic on wrapped canvas
I’ve named this painting from “Cinderella,” when the stepsisters were mocking her for wanting to go to the ball and Cinderella says, “Well, why not? After all I’m still a member of the family, and it’s said, by royal command, every eligible maiden is to attend.”
For the clothing inspiration I used a photograph of Kate Nowland’s.

The painting was done for a Daily Paintworks Challenge, where Layne Cook supplied a photograph from which we could paint. If you check out the photograph you’ll see in the lower left a woman with a rolling suitcase and a man in a suit. I used them for reference, as well as certain parts of the structure.
