This work,also aptly referred to as the “Princess and the Frog”, represents the realistic and perhaps, at times, fanciful expectations that make our lives purposeful, challenging, disappointing and possibly, richly meaningful.
The princess would certainly like to have the frog become her prince and the frog would certainly like the kiss - regardless of whether he is prince in disguise. Ah, the complexity of our expectations, decisions and relationships!
This work is compositional; there was neither a model for the princess nor the frog. So, in a sense, it was fanciful and in the end lived up to my expectations.
