Artist's Description

(please listen to the music as it enhances the viewing experience :o)

The Princesss Revealed:
Even though her mother was only a Baronistava, Maggie May is a true princess by bloodline. Ruling over her many domains in the galaxies can be a daunting task requiring much from her on a daily basis. Here she is contemplating the work that must be accomplished today. She also misses her dear Penascus J. Salondomeer as he is elsewhere on business.
I believe this commissioned portrait truly conveys this pain and anguish she sometimes tends to experience in her rulership because of the many demands placed upon her. It is hopeful that it will be displayed in such a way as to compel the subjects of her monarchy to continue to love her unconditionally.

Ranks of the Nobility
All Sable noblemen or women, and knights or dames, are invested personally by the Princess. For confirmation of a hereditary title of any degree, the ceremonies are held in the Great Hall of the Royal Palace on the Isle, after undertaking a night of fasting, prayer and vigil in the vestibule. During the investiture ceremony, the new peer’s Letters Patent are read to the Court, and then Her Highness presents the postulant with the trappings of his or her position (robes, spurs, sword and sword belt, etc), plus a coronet for hereditary nobles. Hence all Sable nobles are technically ‘belted’, as per ancient tradition. In return, the new peer will swear an Oath of Allegiance to the Princess, with the Princess in turn acknowledging its responsibilities to its subjects.

Reception into one of the Undorian orders takes place at the secret location of the order to which the postulant is being admitted. Some, but not all, include a time of contemplation beforehand, with investiture into the two senior domestic orders (The Order of the Planetary Officiant, The Order of Meristonious Admonisitons) involving the same complex historical traditions of fast, prayer and vigil as investiture into the hereditary fortuitinous, although specific arrangements are made should. During the investiture ceremonies themselves, those who are being admitted into the errant fortitudes in any Order will kneel before the Princess and be dubbed on the shoulders with the Sword of Exemplary Fondness.
_Thank You Wikipedia – for the inspiration in the writing.

I wanted to create a contrast between the dark and the light so used a painting with light technique in Photoshop by using a black masking layer to darken & then painting the lightness back in. . . I may add textures to this work in the future.
