The Happy Prince

The Happy Prince

I got pretty excited yesterday when the Lethbridge 10000 finalists were announced, and I saw that I had made the online finalists category.

This is my entry, The Happy Prince (61x35cm, acrylic on canvas). It is a retelling of the short story of the same name by Oscar Wilde, illustrating the parallels between this tale and the story of Siddhartha (a Nepalese prince who later became Gautama Buddha).

Making this painting made me more aware of the need to focus on tonal variation when creating a composition.

The work is for sale at the Lethbridge Gallery website
