Artwork Description

One of the many fairytale-themed paintings that debuted at my Fairytale Fabulous solo show at Downtown Disney's Pop Gallery, A Portrait of Goldilocks! A softly baroque/rococo portrait style piece, here is lovely Goldilocks with some porridge - and the three bears in the distance. The little bears are inspired by a print I used to have of dancing bears that always reminded me of the Goldilocks story (now I now it was of the 1870s "Bear Dance" painting by William Holbrook Beard - he had so many delightful animal paintings). The historic portrait elements and classical feel have a bit of a pop-surreal feel with my big eyed look, Goldilocks' glorious mane of blonde hair, and the bear-cave-like lighting. An included elegant golden frame matches the classical ambience of this piece. The original acrylic painting SOLD at the show, prints are now available!
