The artist was inspired by the movie the Swan Princess Movie, the technique is impressionism and impasto The bright red, yellows and orange shows a warmness to the painting. The autumn leaves fall in the background as the swan sits in the warm blue lake. She is waiting for her true love. This represents the innocence and purity of a young maiden fully mature. The second meaning is beauty after being labelled “ugly duckling” a transformation of inner and outer.
