Let them eat cake... by KimTurner

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

This is 8 × 10 acrylic painting of a fairy (fairy godmother), inspired by the line “Let them eat cake”…

I thought it would be a gorgeous idea to have Marie Antoinette as the ultimate faerie godmother… with her glamorous pomapdour and dripping in pearls and finery who better!


fairy, fairies, faeries, faerie, marie antoinette, fleur de lys, let them eat cake

Australian painter of winged whimsies; I love faeries, angels, mermaids, princesses, myth, gods & goddesses, cupcakes, colour…

I paint on canvas in acrylic mostly, but sometimes the watercolours come out for a less controlled splash.

    Thanks Stephanie – you know, I only just discovered painting her… I think I have LOTS more of her to come hehe. I think she is the perfect faerie!
    Thanks Ming, that’s so kind… I loved the movie too, you could pretty much just have stills from it from any angle as it is so visually spectacular! Thanks re her rosy cheeks – she’s gotta be blushing of course!
