Acrylic on Canvas – November 2015
I could go into an extensive description of why I loved knights, but to sum it up they had cool “L” shaped moves, they looked like horses, and I was a girl who liked princess stories with knights in shining armor and horses. As I grew up, I found that I still held onto these fairytale notions of who men were and how people were supposed to behave.
And yet, as I start to wrap up my “20’s” I find that the real knight that I needed to rely on in the strategy game that is my life is myself. I’m not the conventional “knight” when it comes to chess pieces.. they look overly groomed while if I had to horseify myself I would be more of a shaggy purple Shetland pony. But I’m okay with that! I’ll be my own knight.. eclectic and unassuming.. and my husband, well he’s my best friend, travel companion and together we’ll fight as a team.
