Who wouldn’t want to live in a pink princess castle?

“It is necessary to try to surpass oneself always; this occupation ought to last as long as life.”
Queen Christina

It’s a Pink Princess Castle – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor

Who wouldn’t want to live in a pink princess castle?  I guess a manly prince.  🙂

I’m still working on a commission, so this one is from the archives.  I have always wanted to tour a castle.  I just love the idea of all the mysterious little nooks and crannies.   Oh and the round rooms with pointy ceilings.

About Queen Christina

Queen Christina of Sweden was the most famous woman of her time, outshining Queen Elizabeth of England. She was born in Stockholm in 1626 during a rare astrological conjunction. Her father insisted that she be raised as a boy and changed the law so she could become his heir. She became the reigning queen at age five. She helped end the Thirty Years War but abdicated her throne in 1654, converting to Catholicism and moving to Rome, where she became a patron of the arts. She died in 1689.

    I had to click “like” and “vote”! I have three Granddaughters who are going to want me to paint castles for them if they see this! They are all Princesses and remind me of that fact ALL THE TIME! Totally wonderful, Beth!

    Don’t forget the secret passages, the treasure room and dungeon! Ok, maybe not a dungeon. It is quite adorably adorable. Gives me some ideas for my next castle (more pointy tower things! More decorative bits!)
