“When I first received the invitation my heart leapt. This was to be my first opportunity to attend the Royal Ball. And what’s more? I had it on good authority that Princess Josette, who had been traveling abroad for the last few years, would indeed be attending. She was nearly my age, and had all of the allure that one would hope for and expect from a young princess. I had changed a great deal since last we saw one another, and I only hoped she would recognize me. I do not know if it was fate or sheer luck, but the night of the ball I found myself alone out on the balcony that overlooked the reflecting pools, and was roused from depths of thought when her unmistakable silhouette appeared in the doorway. My heart, if not time itself, stopped completely. My next memory was Josette, bathed in moonlight shining radiantly even against the backdrop of the dancing stars. She smiled and its meaning was clear: she had indeed recognized me and was as pleased to see me as I was to see her.”


The Night of the Royal Ball was started in 2012, and after a four year break, finished in 2016. 
Ink and watercolor washes with color pencil and acrylic layers, finished with chalk pastel on Arches 300lbs Cold Press Watercolor Paper.
The edges of the piece are the natural paper edge. This painting was intended for oval matte framing.
