It’s good to be Queen

Esther was lovely in form and features according to the book named for her in the Bible. She went without any extrarraneous bangles, baubles and other such bling (if you want to translate the Bible this way) when it was her turn to be presented to the King Xerxes.  And she won his favor and became the queen.

This young woman makes me think of Esther with an innocence and beauty that needs nothing to enhance it. I hope I have conveyed that in this small portrait I painted today.
