Cinderella and The Brain Drain

Ahhhhh! The vacuous stare into space. This painting speaks of the romantic dreams of a young girl as she plans her glorious wedding to her knight-in-shining-armor hunk, her 2.4 well-behaved sparkling clean children riding in a brand new Ferrari van (hmmm) and their fairy-tale life they will all have.

Brain Drain addresses reality. While sleepy Cinderella is dreaming her life away, the "hunk" is passing her by scholastically, and when he's not thinking about sports or fighting imaginary wars, he's obsessed with, shall we say, physical conquests.

This painting has lots of texture built into the many layers of acrylic paint on this 8 X 8 X 1-inch canvas which is painted on all sides.
