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.
Click here (EvieGreenPixie clothing) to see her clothing.

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.
