Oil on canvas, mounted on ACP.  17 by 27 inches unframed, 21 by 31 1/2 inches, framed.

The painting is supposed to be about empowerment--supposed to be about standing up to the monster in the bedroom.  So how come it's fun?  She's got flowers on her curtains and a pink blankie.  She also has her favorite sports hero framed above her bed and she's about to nail the monster with her slingshot.  And the monster knows it.

This painting is on display and offered for sale at Dabbert Gallery, 46 South Palm Ave., Sarasota, FL.  (941) 955-1315.
