Watching Snow White after all these years was like watching a brand new film. As a child, you don't realize how flawed the story actually is. Snow White lacks the personality that is desired from a heroine. This is coming from a person that fell in love with Disney characters like Mulan, Esmeralda, and Jane. Strong, intelligent women that didn't dream of being with saved by a "prince".
I believe that to be my inspiration for the piece entitled, "Are You Kidding Me?" This acrylic painting reflects Snow White's true reaction to a very dusty cottage in the woods.
If there was any part of Snow's personality revealed, it was her motherly instinct when she met the dwarfs. She was warm and loving, and immediately began to care for the seven little men (whom coincidentally, she believed to be children at first). Still, any mother would have the frazzled look expressed here when seeing such a mess. I mean, who really wants to clean all those cobwebs?
